Hi,

After I desperately defended this idea idea here:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=11060

Oh sweet jesus! It's an actual scramble-able 1x1! This is too awesome for human existence.

Man, a scramble-able 1x1x1 is almost a paradoxical as dividing by zero! Is our universe about to implode?

Hey! Put those pieces back inside their sphere!

:lol:


Pantazis


PS. On a serious note, it is not *that* trivial puzzle, even with that simple rotation.
It is in fact an easier version of the Baby Turn.

This is the type of thing that gets me thinking that one day I'm going to check out this forum and find out that the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and Santa Claus are all real.

A 1x1x1 that can be scrambled. Who da thunk?

I've always waited for someone to make one of these and this looks great, it actually can be 'mixed up'

It's actually been made before. However this one looks neater. Now. I'll be the first to make a literal 1x1x1 joke: How well does it turn? :lol: Seriously. I mean it. Does it have ball-bearings to restrict unwanted face-turning? Nice mod, BTW.

Really nice idea, very original. Congratulations!

I would like to see you put this into mass production, I think it would be a big hit. Perhaps you could even do this with Pantazis (just send him a PM), your puzzles would go together very nicely as a set...

PS. Could you make a scramble-able 0x0x0?

Indeed. I stole the coloring scheme from the sphere. It did no harm...

Anybody can reproduce and even earn money with it. It would be to embarrassing to take royalties from this.

Since Kelvin is interested in the origin of ideas:
I had an idea for a series of 18 puzzles of which ca. 9 where (unintentionally) already in my collection. After TheCube presented his Babyface I knew how to fill another gap. Now there are only 3 gaps left and maybe Calzone can help filling another 2 of them.

@TheCube: Next time :?: I will present it one day earlier!
