Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Sweet Dream Cube is a tribute to the Nightmare Cube by Adam Cowan, based on an idea by Noah. The Nightmare Cube is a 2x2x2 Rubik's Cube with internal bandaging. This makes it very hard to solve. Sweet Dream Cube is essentially the same cube as Nightmare Cube. However, the bandaging has been brought to the outside. This way one can clearly see which moves are blocked and why. Even then, Sweet Dream Cube is a complex puzzle to solve. Fortunately, one can easily take the puzzle apart and put it back together again, as the screws are accessible at the outside.

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

Enjoy!

Oskar

Very nice! And extremely aesthetically pleasing as well!

The only thing that would irritate me is that it could never lay flat on a shelf. But that's just my minor OCD talking. :lol:

Let me try to get this straight:
You took a puzzle with hidden bandaging and revealed this bandaging?
Strange but not strange enough! :lol:

I think brass screws would look nicer! But still an interesting puzzle.

So this is similar to a bicube, but with all of the corners unbandaged. The hidden version is meaner, in my opinon. But with the hidden version, it would be possible, if all of the bandaged centers on four of the faces were lined up in an equatorial fashion, for the hidden 2x2x2 version of the mechanism to get internally misaligned. That would be easily fisable with the dream cube, though.
