Thread: One handed Roux cube idea

1. One handed Roux cube idea

today I had this idea for a new kind of 3x3 cube: what if you could make a cube that allows slice turns like a v cube 6x6, like where you turn the middel layer and while only holding one of the outer layers, the other one also doesn't turn.
what would this mean?
I think that this would instantly make roux the best method for one handed, cause after the first block, its no rotations anymore, and after the second, completely 2-gen!
someone has to make this cube!!

2. Roux is already the best method for one handed, because you can just use the table instead.

Yes I did some research after I had this idea and I saw people do that..
but i still thing such a cube would be better that using th table
more comfortable position, and the table is not in the way of the u turns anymore..

4. How would it work so that you could also turn the outer layers individually? I don't think this is possible unless you could somehow switch it into a slice turning mode.
Edit: I guess you could have a button on the right or left centre that locks the L and R faces together when pushed. You engage this when you get to your MU stage. I can think of a simple mechanism that would allow this to work, like a clutch. Would this be competition legal though?

5. The table isn't in the way of U turns anyway.

Some of us like resting on the table :/

It's a cool idea, but implementation would be difficult.

Nope. It adds functions to the cube.

There are completition legal ways of doing this though, making the layer only turn when applied with a specific amount of force. This might make the rest of the solve harder to do though.

Table abuse is easier.

9. abuse? it's not abuse :3

Cited in Table abuse. Who first used the table? I want to see some more background.
