Hi Twisty Puzzle fans,

Floppy 2x2x3 is a tribute to Katsuhiko Okamoto's brilliant and award-winning Floppy Cube. Floppy 2x2x3 works like a normal 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube, but with two faces completely removed. It is a modification of the previously published Floppy 2x3x3, see also You Tube, Shapeways Forum and Twisty Puzzles Forum. I only had to modify the core to make this version.

Watch Floppy 2x2x3 at YouTube.
Buy Floppy 2x2x3 from my Shapeways Shop.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

Excellent puzzle, Oskar! I was just going to post here that you should design a Floppy 2x2, when I realized that you were one step ahead of me. :lol:

Clever, as usual. But isn't it in fact "a tribute to Katsuhiko Okamoto's brilliant and award-winning Super Floppy Cube."?

I have considered including a locking mechanism similar to Okamoto's Super Floppy Cube. However, that is beyond my design skills and beyond Shapeways' 3D-print resolution.
