This unique twisty puzzle starts as a cube with one of its corner pieces filled with 7 smaller cubes of different colors. Turning at an interesting half-step angle, the Pocket Cube is both a shape manipulation and color manipulation puzzle at the same time – truly an unprecedented attribute among twisty puzzles! Similar to Rubik’s Cube but with twist.
Object: Mix up the cube and put it back to the start. At first glance, this cube looks deceptively easy to scramble and solve, with the incorrect assumption that it turns like a regular 2x2x2. The true challenge is quickly revealed after a few simple twists radically alter the cubic shape. The unpredictable shape changes are produced by a concept called ’bandaging’, combined with a shape transformation technique often referred to as ’modding’. The puzzle is actually a 3x3x3 cube with pieces fused (’bandaged’) together and extended to produce a simpler looking puzzle.There are several different solved states that are all indistinguishable from one another, meaning there is more than one solution.
The puzzle is off center for turning. Can you solve it?
