I used to be a fan of Rubik's Cube and have had a lot of fun solving my 3x3 and 4x4 cubes. But I am not sure if I can solve easily a Rubik's Cube with an extra layer. But obviously Dane Christianson has no problem.
Dane Christianson created a Rubik's Cube inspired puzzle: x-shaped Rubik's cube using CAD and 3D printing. The cube has an extra layer on each side to form more of an 'X' shape, so he named it 'X-Cube.'
In the video below Dane demonstrated the different ways you can scramble and put the cube back together. Dane's video attracted all the attention from the Rubik lovers in the world. In two days this videos has got 357,000 views on YouTube.
