A cubic version of the Edge of Insanity puzzle.

Insanity Cubed is a cubic version of the Edge of Insanity puzzle in which the axis system has been aligned such that every face displays the same slice pattern. Like Edge of Insanity, there is no internal bandaging with Insanity Cubed. The puzzle can be scrambled and returned to it's cubic shape without being solved.

The axis system is based on the trigonal dipyramid, and although the slice planes are parallel to the faces of that dipyramid, they are actually on the edge side of the origin. This results in a shallow-cut jumbling mechanism with a minimal number of pieces which still jumbles with every move.

Beginning October 2015, the puzzle was mass-produced under the name "Pitcher Insanity Cube" with body colours in white, black and blue. Please see images 6-7. Metalized versions were also made available in gold, silver, blue, pink and purple; please see image 8.
Further, more metalized versions were available in light blue and light purple.
Edge length: 70 mm
Weight: 174 grams
