This is a 2x3 magic inspired by Pantazis' dino magic. I am aware that there is a similar puzzle built by some one else (I can't remember who) that is also a 2x3 magic cube. I had, however, come up with the idea of making this puzzle before I saw his puzzle.

Special thanks to Pantazis for showing cube transformation pictures of a 2x3.

Yes, I remember that design. But I also can't remember who did it first.
Yours looks good. Well done.

Correct!

Some history:

According to Tim, "a 2x3 design which Rubik obviously didn't think much about before submitting the design"
viewtopic.php?p=171#p171

The first person I know who created with a six-tile magic puzzle is Juozas Granskas six years ago.
viewtopic.php?t=2457&highlight=

Two years later, I was getting close to that concept and it was the time when me and Juozas
had our ideas converge.
viewtopic.php?p=31870#p31870

The secret cube move was secret (but known to be possible), and then I played bit around and
made the first couple of videos about it.

By the way Uber Cuber, it looks nice!

:)

When I first read the title I wondered why "cube" and "magic" were used together... Usually that only happens with the dollar store cubes.

I'm adding this to the already decent-in-length list of puzzles made this year.
