17x17x17 Rubik’s Cube: *Head Asplodes*

Ok, I thought those 5×5, 6×6 and 7×7 Rubik’s Cubes looked difficult, but this (unofficial) World Record 17x17x17 version has truly made my head spin.

Using 3D printing technology, puzzle-maker Oskar van Deventer managed to create this insanely complex version of the cube.  Oskar assembled the cube from 1539 individually dyed pieces, resulting in this oversize 5.5″ cube. I can’t imagine how anyone could solve this thing, but now that it actually exists, where there’s a will there’s a way, right? I guess there’s the possibility that Oskar could could spend the next few years of his life trying to sort it out.

And since the design has actually been turned into a digital format, you can print one for yourself – for the low, low price of $2006.54 (USD). Unless I can rearrange the stickers to solve it, no thanks.
