Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Polo Slide is a puzzle invented by Alex Polonsky. After seeing his prototype, I asked whether I could build my own prototype. Alex' puzzle combines a 2x2x2 twisty puzzle with sliding. Each of the 7 sliders can be put over any of the 8 cylindrical 2x2x2 corners.

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

Enjoy!

Oskar

Cool!

I had heard that the Varikon Barrel got married with the 2x2x2,
but I didn't know they already had a baby!

Very interesting and "kawai"!

:D

I love the concept and that I would probably be able to solve this one.
