I was browsing the internet, and found an octahedron that is vertex turning, but has ball bearings. Is there any info about this? I'm a little intrigued. Thanks!

I think I have 1 of these. Slightly larger and white. I'll take a look.

Ah, yes. I saw this too. The auction had about a day left, and I was the high bidder at about 25 dollars. The final price was about 200 dollars, which is way out of my budget :D

What are the differences to these three?

The color of a puzzle's body does not matter to me.

That's the difference, the small metallic balls with springs, like in a pyraminx.
