...wow... that's amazing. how long did that take including planning?
There was not much planning because the design ist not from me (apart from the colours). As I wrote above I found it in a Swiss Speedcubing Forum (at www.speedcubing.ch) which was the translation from a French Description:
German description:

French description:

I didn't stop the time, but I guess it was between 8 and 10 hours. (about 5 minutes to cut off one piece, 5 min. folding along the lines and about 10 minutes gluing = about 20 min. per piece multiplied with more than 30 pieces = about 10 hours)

That's really cool! I remember Dror Vomberg had one of those at WC2005 and he let me try it, and it was so awesome. I definitely plan on trying to make one next weekend if I have enough spare time.

Do you glue each part of the edge in order...Likecube it self...then the small rectangle then the diagonal flaps or what?


Yea i had to tape down a part of it cause it was not sticking D:

I used a glue called "UHU Alleskleber" (German product):

I glued it in a similar order than you: Cube itself -> diagonal flaps -> small rectangle.
I think more necessary than the order is that you make one step after another and try to be a little bit more precise. Apply the glue thinly on one of the parts you want to put together, press the parts together (in some cases I used a thin screwdriver) WAIT a few seconds until you are sure the parts wont fall apart again and then make the next step.

Would these cubes be legal in competitions ?
As long as
3c) Puzzles must be in reasonable working order, so that normal scrambling is possible.
3f) Cube puzzles must either have coloured stickers or coloured tiles.
3i) No modifications are allowed that enhance the basic concept of a puzzle. Some examples of enhancing the basic concept are: new moves are possible, normal moves are impossible, more colours/pieces are visible, moves are done automatically, more or other solved states.
3l) Puzzles must be approved by a judge before the competitor competes.
are satisfied.
Considering Adam's big 2x2x2 as a precedent, you'd probably be allowed to use a paper cube in competition just for fun (and so that everyone can take a video and put it on YouTube).

Good joke :D :D :D

I don't think anybody can solve a paper cube within the time limit.
I think I would need about 20 or 30 minutes. It takes me about 2-5 seconds for every turn (I turn the cube very carefully because I don't want to destroy it) and I think I would need more than 100 moves because at such a slow speed I will probably make even more mistakes than when I try to solve the cube one-handed.
I thought about trying this, but I'm not sure if the cube would be still OK after so many turns, and it was a lot of work to build it.
