The 7x7x7 cube (normally referred to as the 7x7x7 or 7x7) is a twistable puzzle in the shape of a cube that is cut six times along each of three axes. The first brand of this puzzle was the V-Cube 7, whose inventer, Panagiotis Verdes, patented. Many other cube companies have produced puzzles very similar, but these are considered knock-offs due to using the same basic mechanism. The V Cube 7 is rounded (or 'pillowed') because it is mathematically impossible to make a perfectly cubical 7x7x7 cube without any kind of magnets or locking mechanism, as the corners would fall off.

Shengshou have made a cubic 7x7, and it has become very popular, particularly the smaller version. MoYu have also made a 7x7 called the AoFu, which has a pillowed shape like the V-Cube 7.

This puzzle has 6 fixed centers, a total of 144 other center pieces, a total of 60 edge pieces, and 8 corners, and has 2.0 * 10^160 positions.
