HAH! Joke's on you, submitter. I got the rope burns to prove last night!

I wonder how hard it would be just to take it apart and reassemble it?

No thanks. I'll just continue wasting my time by trying to figure out wimmens.

/Easily a brazillian combinations there..

Auto-erotic asphyxiation fap sessions don't count.

$30-$40 for that? Seems a bit steep.

What, no bruises to go with them?

It has 125,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible patterns, but the Rubik's Cube only has 124,999,999,999,999,999,998,000,000,000,000,000? That seems pretty negligent...

/i am pretty sure i didn't just go full retard with my math...

I'm bored with it already and didn't even watch the whole video.

I think they meant to be multiplicative when they were additive in describing the differences in the total numbers of possibilities between the two cubes.

I don't even think they posted the whole video.  It just kind of stops.  About all he tells you is that he wanted to and then you put the file into a 3D printer after designing it.  No explanation or description of it.  Just the next video in line.  Awesome.

Here is a link to the kickstarter for this project.

Aaron Craft will still solve it in less than a minute.

Indeed, from the Kickstarter:  That's125,486,757,308,950,508,983,252,156,416,000,000 (1.254x10^35) permutations! That's over 2 quadrillion  times more permutations than the original 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube...

Isn't there a web-page out there that simulates a Rubik's Hypercube/Tesseract?

Sounds like a mad heretic.

pfft. Come back when you craft a non-euclidean Rubik device.

Eps05: pfft. Come back when you craft a non-euclidean Rubik device.


Wouldn't solving that release an Outer God and bring about the end of the universe?

No, but you'll wish it had.

thanks
thanks for nothing
NOW what am I going to do with 2 of these?

Also? X-Cube is a better name than XBox One.
