Guy Makes ‘Impossible’ 1x5x5 Rubik’s Cube Puzzle

 |  |  September 4, 2016

This Rubik’s Cube style puzzle will blow your mind. Puzzle maker Tony Fisher has created this “impossible” 1x5x5 Rubik’s cube style cuboid puzzle, and it’s so cool.

What’s so impossible about it? Well, this single-layer puzzle design would not be functional using a traditional Rubik’s cube mechanism.

So what did he use as a mechanism here? It’s pretty simple and works great on this “cuboid” puzzle. Fisher explains the secret to his design in a video below and later demonstrated his solution to the puzzle.

If you really can’t wait to learn the secret, I’ll give it away here: It’s magnets. Damn magicians! It’s always magnets. Magnets are the modern sorcery for wizards.
