Gear Cube, Generation II - Puzzle Cube

Serious Item Code: 17266
The Gear Cube II is a really wild twist on the rotational puzzle concept. Hold it with the quadrilateral shapes facing you and the three rows rotate in the fashion of most puzzle cubes: turning smoothly and as a whole piece. Now, hold it with the semi-circle shape facing you and turn; the gear edged pieces click into each other, rotating the puzzle and individual color pieces!
This new design contains a full gear mechanism that changes the game drastically, in fact 12 full 90 degree turns to make one complete cube rotation.

The designer has established three goals for cubers to aim for when working on this puzzle cube:

  • Get the cube from its gear twisted, protruding state back to it's original, flat-sided, cube state. This is fairly easy, but a great solution goal to set for beginners.
  • Get the Gear Cube to a position where it only shows two colors on each face. This is a step up in difficulty, but shouldn't be out of reach.
  • The, obviously, most difficult solution goal is to solve the entire puzzle: cube state, single colored faces. This is, however, regarded as less difficult than the standard Rubik's Cube.

If you like cube and rotational puzzles, and want to try a unique approach, then pick up the Gear Cube today. See which turns faster: the gears on the puzzle cube or the gears in your head when you're puzzled for a solution!
