Two puzzles I can think of off the top of my head are a 10x10 Cube and the Vcube 3x3. The 10x10 is the only puzzle that I haven't seen a solid version of, and the I think it will be interesting to see how the V 3x3 compares to the Zhanchi or Gu hong.

I feel that a topic has been made like this already.
But I will contribute!
I want to see a proportional cuboid (any type will do), a 12x12 that does NOT use metal wires to keep it in place without a bandaged 3x3 inside it (basically a core and nothing else, which I'm wondering why Leslie Le said there weren't any hidden pieces but when I say the mech, there clearly was)
which I feel is easy to do but I may be super wrong about that.

and for fun: an bump megaminx or bump 6x6

I don't care how big or ugly it is; someone with a good knowledge of robotics and programming needs to design a self-contained 3x3x3 cube with the necessary microprocessor, servo motors, and reserve battery power, to efficiently solve itself from a totally scrambled state. You heard correctly: place the cube-solving robot inside the cube instead of outside. It must have a physical 3x3x3 mechanism with rotating layers. E-Cubes don't count.

A jumbo-sized void mechanism would be a good place to start.

Yes definitely. I've been thinking about that for years. Will happen one day I guarantee.

The crazy 4x4x4 Type 1 is a 2x2x2 inside a 4x4x4.

I wanted a Crazy 5x5x5.

Hi Stardust4ever,
From what I know of circle cubes, this would not be a very interesting puzzle, I think :( . It would be the same as solving a standard 3x3 cube and then a 5x5x5.
Is this what you would want?
EDIT: You prompted me to go back and solve it just now, it's a little more interesting than I remember it, a bit like the 4x4 I, like you said.
Cheers,
Burgo.

I remember to have read in this forum that it was very challenging actually

Hi Marcom,
Do you have the Bo Hu Sim, you can try it :) .
Here is the screenshot of the solve (just for fun), I don't think it is a spoil (what it shows is only the obvious part).
I certainly wouldn't put it in the `challenging` category (provided you can solve a 5x5 or 4x4 I).
Cheers,
Burgo.

Hi Burgo I don't have the time to try it but I believe in you! Perhaps it was an old thread and it wasn't clear how to solve circle cubes yet. It was a discussion about gelatinbrain puzzles. I thought there were some parity cases that could make it challenging but I never tried it.

I've been planning to make that for years! I'm just afraid of infringing some patent law and after putting a lot of time and resources into it, some big company claims the robot is not mine or something... I really wonder how these things work...
