Hi,

Just 2 sticker variations on a 3x3 cube. Relatively easy to make, just handcutting standard sticker sets ... though quite a work.

Both are fun to solve, specially the bipolar cube, which can get confusing at times.


8 color corner cube + Bipolar cube

Bipolar cube (idea shamelessly taken from Randelshofer's virtual cubes page :wink: )

Hope you like them

Nice mods. Very effective. But isn't the BiCube actually called the Bipolar cube? I remember reading it from somewhere.

You are absolutely right. In fact, you can see the correct name in the page (Virtual Cubes) that I mentioned.

My mistake :oops:

Edited.
