One of the earlier cuboids. Started as one of Tony Fisher's custom puzzle.

Today (2012) many cuboids are available as mass produced puzzles. Even more are available as 3D-prints. These makes the 3x4x4 to seem less spectacular than it is.
But in 1998 any cuboid (and any puzzle with a modified mechanism) was an spectacular achievement like this.
Tony Fisher created the first 3x4x4 as a transformation of a 4x4x4 Master Cube / Rubik's Revenge which received heavyweight extensions.
The puzzles dimensions are: 97mm x 130mm x 130mm.
The first two photos shown here were taken by Geert Hellings.

Many other creators have built 3x4x4 with different sizes as handmade cuboids since 1998. Even a pillowed variant (by Claudiu Kuharek) was presented in 2011.

In 2014 a mass produced version (see image #4) by Ayi Liu hit the market available with white, black, blue and transparent body.
Size: 54 x 72 x 72 mm
Weight: 180 grams
