Chris used old Rubik’s cubes, super glue, paint, the CAD program SolidWorks, a 3D printer and Dremel tools to create the fully functional puzzle toys. Here’s the original cube in action:

Depending on how you look at it, that cube is either too hard or too easy to solve because all six faces look the same, a mistake that Chris rectified in the succeeding versions by using different color combinations for each side as well as by using different symbols.
