Hi,

With my work on the museum here on twistypuzzles I have come to a point were I need help on the details.
In this case: 2x2x3
The earliest known trace here on the forum dates back to 2003. Back in those days it was already mentioned on Katzuhiko Okamotos (no longer available) website.

Does anybody know who and/or when this puzzle was made for the first time?
Mechanisms don't matter. The old-fashioned "built up from a bandaged 4x4x4"-method is valid like all other mechanisms.

Best mod ever, in my opinion.

I know Tony Fisher first had the idea of using a 3x3x3 to make a 2x2x3. But he never built it.

First place I saw it was here: http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~wq6h-tkj/bb ... ower_e.htm and here: http://www.speedcubing.com/ton/2x2x3.htm
And of course here: http://twistypuzzles.com/articles/building-tonyfisher/

My first ever post here was about my own 2x2x3. :-)

Thank you for the hints.
Lately I found that the 2x2x3 was mentioned (with image!) on Okamoto's site back in 2001.
