Hello cubers.
I really love I-cubes, therefore I thought to create a really extreme version.
The 5x6x7 I-cube has 2 faces that has been modded, the orange face which is 2 layers deep and the green face which is 3 layers deep. I choose 2 adjacent faces and not 2 opposite ones because I thought that it would make the puzzle less symmetrical therefore more challenging.
The bandaging is so extreme that a proper scramble is difficult enough.
I haven't manage to solved it yet but so far I find it extremely difficult.

A demonstration video is available here:http://youtu.be/a0v5NTShG6g

Hope you like it.

I would have asked you about the asymmetry if you hadn't answered it by yourself.
With his "layer removal"-concept Traiphum started a whole new line of puzzles.
Lets see how far this can be driven.

Great puzzle! I just found out about this puzzle from SuperAntonioVivaldi's video. I must say fanscinated! Though I don't own any myself, I'm quite familiar with the iCube concept. Applying it to two different axes is crazy though! If SuperAntonioVivaldi says it's difficult, then I know it will be awesome!

I've just recently started modding. If things go well on my first few mods, I might have to give this a try...

I also saw this on Jon's video and am amazed! Every time he does an unboxing I get jealous, but this time I am practically drooling! I really hope these become more easily available as I really really want one!

Congratulations on creating something really unique!

SAV says that this is difficult :shock: In that case I never want to own this beast. Great build by the way, and I hope to see more from you.
