I have built some FF microbes, what I would like to show you!
Unfortunately the pictures are not the best quality.
I will try to take some good pictures from them, and I will show them to you!

And now the pictures:
All of them:
Image
Truncated cubes:
Image
Bandaged cubes:
Image
Normal and twisted:
Image Image

Image Image
With my normal size 3x3x3 cube:
Image

I hope you like them!

They're so tiny! :D

I should order a bunch of keychain cubes and a new razor saw.

They look great!

I have ordered micro keychain cubes from a factory in China.
But I think you can buy the same at DX or DP

Yes, but they have the same micro cube for £2.99
The DX sell it for $1.68 (and there is no postal fee!)

I think the difference in the prise is too high...

If that's the case, then those regular mods are really sloppy... :wink:

But really, those are awesome! You should borrow Tony's humongous 2x2 just to take a picture with them.

Thanks for the better pics.

I'm still not sure what the tetrahedral one is. Any chance you could show a close-up photo of it mid-turn?

The tetrehedral one looks like a half truncated cube with a slightly different color scheme than a normal one.

That one is a Half truncated cube, just the coloring is different (confusing...)
To be honest that is my favorite one.

For you I'll make some pictures in the near future!

Nice job Olivér!

I love these miniatures!

Tony presented some more microbes on the last DCD:
Image

I got the chance to do some twists on the small barrel and I was amazed about the perfect movement.
Yours are a perfect addition to Tony's series. I hope you are also happy with the mech.

And let's keep the name "microbes" for these small size puzzles. That suits really perfect! :D

I did not know, that Tony made microbes as well.
Funny to made the same Idea.

I'm still working on some more microbes.
Like Fisher cube and 12 sided cube. But I think I'll made more, if I will have some time.
(I have more than 50 pcs mini 3x3x3 keychains, and more than 10 pcs normal 3x3x3 keychains just to make mods from them...)

When I will ready with some, I'll present it.

And yes, I think the same:
the MICROBES name is the best for these tiny puzzles
