Hi,

While polishing Shapeway's puzzles I got idea to make
Sandpaper Cube. This is 3x3x3 cube but with
sandpaper sheets (P80, 120, 240, 360, 600, 1200)
instead of color stickers. I dyed sheets black and they
look the same. Only one way to find the difference is to
touch them. One the pictures under flash light you see
that sheets have different texture, but under regular
light you find no difference. It is funny to solve cube
by touch. Enjoy!

Best regards,
Vladimir Yaroslavskiy

Great idea. But after a couple of hours of speed-solving practice, you would have no fingerprints left! Although this would be good for you criminal career :lol:

I can't help laugh at the irony that you went to the trouble of using sandpaper to make the parts ultra smooth, and then used sandpaper instead of stickers. :D

This would only be good if they let you use it in a blind speed solve

Ouch! I don't want to try this cube- I worry that my callouses will disappear! :lol:
Very clever idea.

Brilliant. This is one of the only cases where it is good that the puzzle turns like sandpaper. :P

The paper you have used is wet and dry. Remember you get better results using it wet! Good luck with that.
But yes, a clever variation of the blind man's cube.
