Hello folks,

I am making my 4x4x2 Rylox Prism available for sale:
http://cubeman.org/cubesell.html

The rotational movement is good. I'll post a video of it later today. Please allow at least three weeks for delivery. In my opinion it is the most interesting of the prisms (out of the ones I have made) from a solver's point of view.

Mark

Ok the video is finally ready:

http://maxhost.org/cubes/rylox.avi

I encoded the avi file using mencoder:

mencoder file.mpg -o file.avi -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -sub subtitle.srt -ffourcc DX50

I tested the video on Linux and Windows 2000 so hopefully it should work for most people.

I bought Mark's Rylox Prism.
It's really a very nice puzzle and the foam pads are indeed quite nice in handling.

This puzzle is really an interesting one to solve, not only because of the strange shapes it can get, but also because bandaged puzzles are always quite difficult to solve (and I'm indeed still not ready with it).

That's good to hear Frank.

I'm still waiting for mine to come in the mail. Damn holidays here... I have to wait a few more days, if it's even delivered to my job. If I knew it was going to come around now, I would have asked Mark to send it to my house! lol....
