Genuine NxNxN V-Cubes and over 100 other puzzles are available in my Puzzle Shop here: *******tonyfisherpuzzles****/puzzleshop.html Things have come a long way since this hoax a few years back. I never would have dreamed that I would ever build a real 11x11x11. After 26 years of serious puzzle making I figured it would be fun and a change to instigate a hoax on the Twisty Puzzle forum. I never expected anyone to believe it and I was always going to own up pretty quickly afterwards. Some people got the joke but many didn't and once again I apologise to those who believed I had really created this puzzle. ALL my other puzzles are genuine and I will NEVER repeat this. After I owned up I forgot all about the You Tube video and it was sometime later that I changed the description. It was certainly not my intention to leave it so long. The 'puzzle' itself was created partly for the hoax but also because I wanted to own a 9x9x9 mock-up until I could get my hands on the real thing. It was necessary to make three for my hoax. Sometime ago I picked up 200 poor quality Mini (keychain) Rubik's Cubes on ebay. These were a perfect size for my fake 9x9x9. The first step was to fix three of these cubes together in a stack forming a 3x3x9 block. I did this in such a way that it was possible to rotate all nine horizontal rows though nothing else. I then disassembled several more of the Mini Cubes and glued them into solid 1x3x3 blocks. I then glued eight of these together in a square around each one of the 3x3x9's rows to make each of the nine 1x9x9 layers required. This makes a 9x9x9 looking puzzle which has nine layers of rotation in one dimension but none in the others. This could be viewed as a 1x1x9 puzzle with 65,536 combinations though extremely easy to solve. As stated the photos to the left and above were used in the forum post. The way I put stickers on the cubes was extremely important to carry off the hoax. The aim was to use the three cubes to give the impression in the video that just one had gone from totally solved to a six sided chequered pattern. To achieve this each was stickered differently and by swapping the puzzles during the video I could give the impression that there was just one fully functional puzzle. I have a section of unedited video also uploaded to my channel. In this (other) video you can see how I carefully swapped puzzles. When this swap was edited out and camera angles changed it looks like only one puzzle was used. If you view the original video again here you will see what I mean. I will repeat that ALL of my other puzzles are real and fully functional. In December 2009 myself and some friends finished a genuine fully functional 11x11x11. I have heard talk of 13x13x13s and even seen designs for 17x17x17s. It now seems strange looking back at my 9x9x9 hoax.

This is my first try to get something out of my 8x8x8 RGB LED cube. I build the cube using a pre-release version of a kit from hypnocube****. That required soldering more than 500 LED's (that is 57 times more than for the popular 3x3x3 cube but less than the impressive monochrome 10 x 10 x 10 cube ( *******www.youtube****/watch?v=1rMgoNGlIY0 )) as regular as possible. The nice black case (hard to see in the video) needed precise holes for the wires, so I did that in our local FABLAB (*******www.fablabgroningen.nl/). The music comes from Kevin Macleod (CC license, incompetech****). The raw data comes from 3dleds****. I converted their data to images and imported those in adobe premiere. There I could mix them any way I liked and change the colors. Next step was to render the result back to images and convert it back to a format I could send to my cube using my own tiny little program. What didn't work very well is to record the movie using my photocamera. When making movies all settings are on automatic, causing the leds to be overexposed. Next step is to make live animations matching the music. 1-nov-2011: just interfaced it with the kinect. see *******www.youtube****/watch?v=vgtUwYGlEx8 17-nov-2011: added some walking lemmings. see *******youtu.be/EC2MzMsi1YM

As Around The Sun The Earth Know She's Revolving And the rosebuds know to bloom in early may Just as hate knows love's the cure You can rest your mind assured that I'll be loving you always As now can't reveal the mystery of tomorrow Hut in passing will grow older everyday Just as ail that's born is new You know what i say is true That i'll be loving you always Until the rainbow burns the stars out of the sky Until the ocean covers every mountain high Until the day that 8õ8õ8 is 4 Until the day that is the day that are no more Did you know that true love asks for nothing Her acceptance is the way we pay Did you know that life has given love a guarantee To last through forever and another day As today i know i'm living but tomorrow Could make me the past But that i mustn't fear I know deep in my mind The love of me i've left behind Cause i'll be loving you always. Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky Until the ocean covers every mountain high Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream Until the day is night and night becomes the day Until the trees and seas just up and fly away Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4 Until the day that is the day that are no more Did you know that true love asks for nothing? Her acceptance is the way we pay Did you know that life has given love a guarantee To last through forever and another day As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving And the rosebuds know to bloom in early may For now i know deep in my mind The love of me i've left behind Cause i'll he loving you always. Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky Until the ocean covers every mountain high Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream Until the day is night and night becomes the day Until the trees and seas just up and fly away Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4 Until the day that is the day that are no more

Hooked the cube up to an Arduino to answer the inevitable "does it work with an arduino?" questions ;)

Several years ago I made my 4x4x4 Ball from a 4x4x4 Master Cube puzzle. Quality was not good since I cut down the cube just a little too much. It was a good learning exercise though. In 2008 I made a new version which you can see here. This time I used a 4x4x4 Eastsheen cube and instead of cutting it down I built onto it. I am very happy with the resulting puzzle. It's quite large but movement is very smooth and I have yet to find any problems with it. It was made by hand without the use of rapid prototyping. I have used the exact same high quality textured stickers that you get on Meffert's Skewb puzzles. These work better than standard Rubik's Cube style stickers on a curved surface. I used blue opposite green, pink opposite yellow and bright orange opposite the dull sandy orange. It's not obvious how to colour a spherical puzzle but simulating a cube seems to work pretty well. See- *******tonyfisherpuzzles**** for photos and more information on this and all my other puzzles.

Great lyrics, I'm totally in love with this song. :) I'll be loving you always, Until the rainbow burns the stars out of the sky, Until the ocean covers every mountain high, Until the dolphins fly and parrots live at sea, Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream. (knowing that loving you) Until the day is night and night becomes a day, Until the trees and seas just up and fly away. Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4, Until the day that it's the day that I'm no more.

My Ball In A Cube is similar to my Overlapping Cube puzzle. However it has more combinations and is trickier to solve. There are an additional 12 hidden pieces that need to be positioned and correctly orientated. These pieces correspond to the middle edges on a 5x5x5 though not as straightforward to deal with. They are only properly visible between completed moves. All moves are accessed from the exterior cube so you never have to reach in and touch the ball. As with my Overlapping Cube it has a interior block which hinders certain movement. It is difficult to understand the effect of this block on the puzzle without handling it. Many people believe the block stops the puzzle being fully functional. However this is far from true since the block has always existed in the mechanism and does not prevent the full mixing of the puzzle. Removing the block would add functionality though would be a completely pointless exercise since the block is what makes it and my Overlapping Cube unique solving challenges. It's a bit like saying a Skewb is not fully functional since the corners can't turn. Without the block you just have a regular 5x5x5 with a few parts missing. In addition the middle row would be awkward to move and line up. I am very pleased with the quality and rotational movement is smooth. The cube stickers are from the Eastsheen 4x4x4 it was made from and the ball stickers are made from the same high quality textured material you find on original Skewbs. I have found that these Skewb style stickers are much better than normal Rubik's Cube type on curved surfaces. I selected a colour scheme where the ball stands out from the cubic "cage". To construct my Ball In A Cube it was necessary to first construct a Mini 5x5x5 Ball. Once the ball was made I could then use the appropriate parts to construct this puzzle. Everything was done by hand without the use of rapid prototyping. It is definitely one of my favourites. I made it in 2008.
