A mirror cube would be confusing, but I think two different cubes, one with standard colors and the other with both colors and a different dot/shape pattern on each side would be very reasonable.I want a BLD event where a mirror cube and 3x3 are scrambled identically, memo is done on the mirror cube, and solve is done on 3x3.
Not only has this been done, but a random-state jumbling scrambler has in fact already been written for it using that notation.1. Good luck on finding a notation system for the curvy copter.
This is called match the scramble and it is dominated by reverse blind solving. I think they had it at the Red Bull cubing championships and it's also an event in the weekly competition.What about an event that you need to scramble your cube to be exatcly another that are scrambled?
Different people certainly have different opinions as to what a "good length" is. Mine would certainly be longer, especially on the short end. I suppose 5 seconds is barely okay for a world record single.1) Good length, between 5 and 60 seconds.
I still personally believe that kilominx and master pyraminx are the coolest ideas. They are both pretty quick events, and have decent hardware already. A lot of new innovation would come out if they were excepted as events, and they do seem to be the two cubes with the most following. 3x3 has larger/smaller versions of it self, so why can't megaminx and pyraminx? Furtheromre, both events are short enough to be quick, and long enough to be non-trivial. Perfect imo.A few weeks bump oops, but I think I have good criteria for good new events.
1) Good length, between 5 and 60 seconds.
2) Distinct from other events, rather than being a shape mod, different sizes, or different ways of solving an existing event.
Team blind is a different way of solving 3x3
2x2 oh is a different way of solving 2x2
2 3x3s or double oh are different ways of 3x3
kilominx is a different sized megaminx
ghost cube and mirror cube are shape mods
master kilominx is a different sized megaminx
Mosaic cube is too long, not having a sub 1 ao5
This leaves Curvy Copter, Redi Cube, which may be slightly too short and luck dependent, and Gear cube, which I would change to a gear ball or larger gear cube.
