Patent holder: Daqing Bao (The designer of Dayan/Taiyan Cube, Crazy2*2*3, Crazy4*4*4)

The original thread here

Video here: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTU1OTYyOTQ0.html

There will be eight different cubes, named by the Eight Planet in the Solar System. See difference in this picture:


This guy is a genius in creating cubes:D










At last, he said that Crazy Megaminx Plus will also be released soon:)

I don't like the non-symmetry. Hope these can be changed easily so that *no* centers rotate (apparently that's called "Circle 3x3x3" invented by someone else).
The designer explained this in the original thread. i'm just too lazy to translate all of his words:D Here's what he said:
i had planned to make Crazy 3*3 cube since three years ago, but i found that it had been made by others in TwistyPuzzle, so i decided to create such more challenging cubes with Mr Huo(idk who he is)
And that's why he named them "Crazy 3*3 Plus"

Amazing. I love any cube that is 'crazy'. I have never had so many unique solving experiences as I have with the crazy cubes that are coming out now.

This. I'd much rather have a fully functional Circle 3x3x3, instead of these bandaged versions. I'd like to see those mass produced before the Crazy 3x3 Plus or the Crazy Megaminx Plus.

I hope simple modding can make the unbandaging possible.

You know, these Crazy cubes are really intimidating (well, it was for me, at least), but they're far easier than expected. I recently bought a crazy 3x3x2:



I solved that cube in about 10 minutes. I was honestly expecting to struggle with it, but it was really easy. While the Crazy 3x3x3 also looks intimidating, I'm expecting it to be a piece of cake as well.

Any idea when these will be for sale?

It could be
But if you want a really puzzling puzzle, try carzy 4x4x4 version II
you need to master at least 4 puzzle : 2x2x2, 3x3x3, 4x4x4 and 2x2x3

Nah, for crazy 4x4-II all you need is:
to be able to solve a 2x2 and a supercube 4x4
I understand that Daqing doesn't want to bother with the normal Crazy 3x3 because it's already been done, but it would be nice to be able to buy one for a reasonable price anyway.

Interestingly, since the centers on a Crazy 3x3 don't need to rotate, you could actually make it 100% out of wood, or even out of only paper. It would be interesting to try this.

The Diansheng version is different from the DaYan version.
