So I didn't research this myself, this just happened to show up in my Facebook news feed. In the V-6b topic I made, we discovered an are on the V-cube site where it appeared to be showing sticker mods for sale.

I can be wrong, but I don't think they are stickers after seeing this from the V-cube Facebook page.

Does anyone have any ideas about those puzzles, because I'm clueless right now.

It looks like the "Create Your Cube" items are printed on:
https://www.v-cubes.com/index.php?optio ... Itemid=239
These puzzles could be a really nice gift.

From the research I have done, the V-cubes page is a copy of what is being launched here:

http://www.designyourcube.com/

The puzzles from Design Your Cube are printed, and the results are really quite beautiful! I can attest to that personally.

I'd tried looking for the fish and the lizard drawn by M. C. Escher on the website that you posted. I couldn't find anything. How did you get those types of designs? They look beautiful.

I must say that this technology is amazing. I was in Athens in late December, and tried them in person.

The themes are made in such a way, that the cuts are minimised. This means that any picture or photo
embedded on those cubes looks very impressive and complete. Friction does not seem to affect those
themes because of their good precision, but as we all know, time will tell more about it.

In my opinion, an excellent improvement on the look of nxnxn puzzles.

:D
