8x8x8 Cube

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 VCube (Vcube 8), whose inventer, Panagiotis Verdes, patented. Many other cube companies, as Shengshou have produced puzzles very similar, but these are considered knockoffs 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.
