A 2x2x2 consisting only of rails. It uses polarizing filters instead of stickers.
Polaroid Cube is a twisty puzzle that uses polarizing filters instead of stickers. The use of polarizing filter was suggested by Landon Kryger, inspired by the creators Hollow Cube. Depending on their orientation, two pieces of polaroid filter let light through or block the light.
Polaroid Cube is built as a Void 2x2x2. It has thick rims to contain the dovetail mechanism. Each of the eight pieces has three sheets of polarizing filter. The pattern is 1xHHH, 3xHHV, 3xHVV and 1xVVV. The puzzle turns like an ordinary 2x2x2 Rubik's Cube.
The goal is to go from "all light" to "all dark" and vice verse.
