Dane Chrsitianson created this using CAD and 3D printing. It's a twisty puzzle with fully functional additional layers on four of the faces of a 3x3x3 puzzle.

The 3-D printer craze just ain't slowing up. Like it wasn't enough for these technological marvels to spit out houses, drugs, firearms, body parts, and all manner of plastic items you can simply print out and pitch straight into landfill, this guy's made a puzzle that's so much fun, it's in danger of attracting unwanted attention from the Rubik's legal team.

Regular folks seem just as interested in the "X-Cube," with this video pulling 200,000 views in one day on YouTube.

This project was completed through the Idea Shop at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
