Playing with Timur's Gear Octahedron I realized this puzzle
in cube shape should look very amazing.

I see only one problem how to turn the "corners" which will
be the centers of the cube. My suggestion is creating hexahedral
hole and use special device like this (but much larger)
to turn the gear. I think it is funny.

What do you think?

Thank you for pointing to this! Video is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QRoWojFPe8

My idea is to use hexahedral device for turning,
but as we can see, turning by other parts is available.

Incorrect. Danger Cube is the mixup-cubic form of this.

Well, it could still be used as the gear corner turning octahedron if you ignore mixup... :)

I think it's a good proposal for our ABS-modders.
