Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Void 6x6x6 is a twisty puzzle, inspired by Katsuhiko Okamoto's famous award-winning Void Cube, a hollow version of Rubik's Cube. This 6x6x6 version introduces a completely new way of turning, in which edges turn into the cube. This design has been discussed before at the Twisty Puzzles Forum.

YES, THIS PUZZLE IS FOR SALE. Unfortunately, it does not fit within Shapeways' upload limit, so the only way to buy it is from me directly.

Watch the YouTube video.
See the puzzle in my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

:shock: I didn't think this would be made. It's awesome!

Also, I noticed you only turned the edges and the outer layers (Both the video and pictures). Can it do 2 layer and 3 layer turns?

After seeing the edges being able to turn, I don't believe a mechanism could be built around it. You could probably build a true Void 6x6x6 using a 4x4x4 void cube concept.

Anyways, back to the puzzle. Great work Oskar, phenominal puzzle, keep up the good work!
