Hello,

I continue my series of cubes with magnets and based on "metal" sphere.
I would like to present the next cube - SuperX. This cube is combination
of Dino and 2x2x2 cubes. 3D model of the cube was created by Oskar.
The puzzle turns well, but you should play carefully, it is not for speedcubing.
Enjoy!

Video: SuperX
Related: 48 cube, Dino Chop, Little Chop, Makarov's Cube.

Best regards,
Vladimir Yaroslavskiy

I really like this series. Unfotunately I never had one of these puzzles with magnets in my hands.
I am especially interested in the "Dino Chop". Why is the link to the video of this onenot working?
Do you think this puzzle (Dino Chop)will ever be mass produced so that I can afford one?

Now make it so it can turn on edges like a helicopter cube :twisted:

I don't think Dino Chop (as well as other magnets cubes) will be mass produced:
there is high cost because of magnets, and community likes more twisty puzzles.

Video of Dino Chop is not working because my old account was deleted accidentally
and I should reload previous videos again.

EDIT:

I'm making magnet cubes which have very complex mechanical implementation
(and therefore not working / playable). Magnet versions of these cubes are much
simpler and work.

I would like to mention that TomZ has made a very decent Super-X without any magnets. At least mine is working well. (The Dino 3x3x3 from TomZ uses magnets improving the mechanical turning.)

Yes, of course, TomZ's SuperX works very nice. Writing about mechanical versions, I didn't count
SuperX and excluded from my scope. My correct phrase should be: "I'm making magnet cubes
which have very complex mechanical implementation (and therefore not working / playable).
Magnet versions of these cubes are much simpler and work."

My apologize for confusing message.
