    I got the idea of this from the tv show the big bang theory. I've been working on it for a week or so and just finished it [with the help of my sister!]



    Sorry the picture quality sucks, I took it from my iphone. Hope you guys like it!

    Make an uber void mechanism in one of those so that it holds tissues AND turns!

    I think the real question is: will it blend?

    But, seriously, it looks really good

    except for that Yellow-white-_ corner at the bottom middle.

    The yellow and white tiles are on opposite sides of the cube and do not have adjoining edges, they are never part of the same individual cube.

    Maybe they do on your cube. Maybe they don't on his.

    Different color schemes, and Mike was just poking fun. He uses the Japanese scheme. So does hatter.

    cool. another cool thing to do would be a rubiks cube car. in my class we were making co2 cars and after already starting I thought of it. I was thinking just getting the block of would and making indentions. then putting on stickers, but modding a real rubiks cube would be cooler, so that it could turn.

    If you look closely you can find a cube or twisty puzzle in at least 1 in 5 episodes (estimation), they have multiple cubes in their apartment, as well as a tissue box, alarm clock, and various shirts all in cube form/with cubes on them.
