Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Invisible Handlebar Cube was suggested by Kelvin Stott after seeing my Tunnel Cube. Invisible Handlebar Cube is functionally identical to Adam Cowan's Handlebar Cube, but now with invisibly-connected handlebars.

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

Enjoy!

Oskar

Surely the middle handle could be made solid, so you don't need the charm and strange quark pairs. As I understand, these are the most expensive quarks, so you could have saved yourself a lot of money. I think Carl may have pulled the wool over your eyes here :lol:

I love the additional move. And the pumpkin! :D

What! There was a pumpkin in that video? I couldn't take my eyes off that pink jumper :shock: I'm sure at some point a gorilla walked past behind Oskar.

I was too busy counting the number of times he turned the puzzle :lol:
But this is cool! Now you should try and make a version where the handlebars are floating in mid-air. :mrgreen:

LOL!!! A significant portion of that video was devoted to my nonsense. Great puzzle Oskar.

Any chance you could release a version of this puzzle without the handlebars as I feel they just to the price with the extra material. It seems like they could easily be replaced by stickers showing where the pieces are connected. They look nice and it adds to the fun of the puzzle but they don't add anything from a functionality standpoint as far as I know.

I love it when such funny things could be made out of simple shape variants.

Why not purchase the original Tunnel Cube?

They contain the six quarks required to form the invisible force field. Wthout them it would be cheaper, but the quantum structure of the universe would begin to unravel. And that's bad.
