This is my latest puzzle. Its the square-1 speed cube. I always thought the square-1 was an underrated puzzle so I thought that if there was a good speed cube version it might gain some popularity.
It has a different mechanism than the usual rail mechanism used in the mf8 square-1. It uses more center pieces to hold in the pieces making the puzzle more springy. It can cut anywhere on the small wedge pieces and take absolutely no effort to turn.
I would be interested in trying to mass produce it if anyone is interested. I think there might be a good marked for a new square-1.
I use a combination of the roux and the beginners method to solve the square-1. I think its a good method because it is more intuitive and takes only 3 algorithms and I get better times with it than with the beginners method. the slice move alg, the permutation alg, and the parity alg. I am going to make a video on it soon so you guys can tell me what you think.
Here is a link to the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4V_Kmag3xw&feature=youtu.be
