In the year of 2012, the sun exploded, which made the inner side of the earth very hot. The plates began to move intensely, and the rotation rate of the core and the crust varied a lot. It is a disaster for the earth, but what would it mean to TWISTY PUZZLES?

The movie 2012 gave me the inspiration to make this puzzle. It is not just a regular 3x3x3 with earth stickers, all the blocks on each face could be move freely. Please refer the video for more details. : )

That is a puzzle that has been talked about quite a bit on this forum, but I think that is the first one ever made! Good job!

Shouldn't it be Cube 2012? xD or maybe I'm just dumb......
Really nice puzzle, is it possible to add stickers to the internal-3x3x3 so you have to solve that too? :D

Yeah. It's so cool to see puzzles that have been talked/theorized about for years finally come into existence.

Several previous attempts at this puzzle said that they had trouble because the tiles could slide out mid-turn. Did you fix this an issue on yours or do you have to be careful while turning it? Very nice puzzle either way.

Actually, it has been done many times in the past (where different colors were used).

Three of those versions are here: (there are more but a better research is needed)

TP forum member skenegee even provided a free template for the forum members.
In any case, I love the colors of this cube, make sure you don't destroy Earth too much!

We're doing a good job here of not saying what the video reveals. Let's keep that up so that we get more reactions like Paul's!

What? :shock: Y'all sayin' it ain't tetrahedral with spiky bits on it? :lol:

Anyway, very nice puzzle, although it looks like it could be very difficult to solve. :D

Could somebody (either publicly here, or through PM), let me know what's going on here? My Internet filter blocks the web site of the video...

Looks great, very clever. Is it possible to design it so that when you slide a piece the sticker piece rotates itself?

If you used a round stalk instead of a square one, that'd be possible.

I think it'd make the whole puzzle easier, though.
