Nice work. I think a version of this with level-one unbandaging would be really interesting.

A sphere-shaped Curvy Copter!
Cool idea.
Spheres make me afraid because of the stickering...

I think this quote from American Beauty just about sums it up for me:

There cannot be too much beauty in the world, I think.
Like the Curvy Copter I view this as real art. Beautiful, as many have said here before. Very beautiful!!!

I was wondering how long after the Helicopter Cube that we would see a sphere built from it. I was way off...

This sphere will show very clearly what happens inside the Helicopter Cube during the Jumble moves, and will actually be able to make some moves that are blocked by the outer parts of the cube.
