last night, i went out and bought 5 3x3x3's from a kmart down the street from my house (had to dig around on the top shelf and behind some polly pocket dolls, but i was not going to be denied my cubes). before i went to bed, i had finished a decent fused cube that im going to perfect tomarrow. today, i spent a few hours and finished a triamese cube. both are fully funtional and twist rather well for brand new cubes.

the only problem i have is that the fused cube will lock up occasionally from pieces catching on each other. a little bit of putty and sanding should fix this problem though

while it would look very cool, the center cube of a fused triamese would not turn in any direction if they were fused in a straight line. i suppose that if you wanted to, you could fuse them in a sort of triangle, but doing so would limit your cubes to two with only the F and U face turnable and one with only the U face turnable. siamese fused cubes would be interesting... possibly latter on. to build one, you would take two sets of fused cubes and join them together by making two of the cubes siamese.

with this, there are two possibilities, the outer fused cubes on opposite sides or on the same side. same sides you get a kewl little automatic stand and opposite sides you get a nice linear effect, which one would be cooler?
