The original idea came to me on January 2012.
There was one prototype before this. Both 3D modeled by ElectronicKid.
Note that at January, Constrained cube was not published. Edit: It was there from a long time ago, didn't know that :(
Idea was from Latch cube and Quarter cube (which are both Okamoto's masterpiece)

When you turn the cube, the center piece do not move.
This strategy blocks some turns. See the comments on Img05 and 06.

Because the center piece never turns, the center piece, center cap and the core are combined. Didn't used any screw.

I didn't scrambled it by now. I guess it'll be pretty tough ;)

Actually, I published the Constrained Cube much earlier: in September 2010.

All edges and all faces are identical.
That means there are 16777216 different configurations.
Without symmetries a rough 350000 remains.
Further filtering is complicated.
