Huge Cubes

From Speedsolving.com Wiki
(Redirected from 11x11x11 Cube)

A huge cube refers to cubes with many layers. How many layers is required can differ between individuals though most agree that a cube must have at least 6. This page documents the cubes larger than the 7x7x7 (the largest cube adjudicated by the World Cube Association). The largest mass produced cube is currently the 17x17x17 cube produced by shapeways and YuXin while the largest ever made is the 33x33x33 created by Grégoire Pfennig.

8x8x8 Cube
Alternative names: 8x8x8, 8x8
Shape: Cube
Internal Mechanism: 8x8x8
Inventor: Panagiotis Verdes
Year:
Produced by: V-Cube, Shengshou, YuXin HuangLong, MoFang JiaoShi, Cyclone Boys

The 8x8x8 cube (normally referred to as the 8x8x8 or 8x8) is a twisty puzzle in the shape of a cube that is cut seven times along each of three axes. The first brand of this puzzle was the V-Cube (V-cube 8), whose inventor, Panagiotis Verdes, patented. Many other cube companies, as Shengshou have produced puzzles very similar, but these are considered knock-offs due to using the same basic mechanism. The V Cube 8 is rounded (or 'pillowed') because it is mathematically impossible to make a perfectly cubical 8x8x8 cube with even layers without any kind of magnets or locking mechanism, as the corners would fall off.

Shengshou have made a cubic 8x8x8 (a bigger external layer), and it has become very popular.

This puzzle has 6 fixed centers, a total of 210 other center pieces, a total of 72 edge pieces, and 8 corners.

2019 (mass produced)

Produced by: ShengShou

The 12x12x12 cube is a twisty puzzle in the shape of a cube that is cut 11 times along each of three axes.

Leslie Le finished building the first fully functional 12x12x12 cube on November 20, 2009. As one can see from the the video demonstration (for proof of full functionality), it was pillow-shaped. On December 20, 2012, another puzzle maker finished building a flat-shaped 12x12x12 cube. Neither of these puzzles were mass-produced.

In 2017, VeryPuzzle released a picture of a 12x12x12 on their Facebook page; it was believed to be an indication that they intended to release the first mass-produced 12x12x12. However, the first mass-produced 12x12x12 was ultimately released in April 2019 by ShengShou (a stickerless pillow-shaped version). On September 12, 2019 Moyu released the first mass-produced flat-shaped stickerless 12x12x12 cube.
