Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Roadblock Cube was suggested by Will in this video. Effectively, it is a 2x2x6 in three directions.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

Kind of a 3D Chopsticks-mechanism - cool idea!

:shock: :shock: :shock:

1) Speechless!

2) Breathless!

3) Gobsmacked!

4) On my way to the mental asylum!

What can I say?

This is the best 4D interpretation of a twistypuzzle I have ever seen, or even imagined!

Agree. It looks like a 2x2x2x2. But functionally they are still very different.

Class puzzle!
Is difficultly arranged... but to solve very simply.

The Roadblock Cube has surprising property - any two external cubes 2х2х2 it is possible to change by places. For example it is possible to solve external cubes so that they looked at an internal cube by identical colours.
