However, as the eight corners of each cube are solidly connected, each row or column of cubes tumbles are a whole. The motion of this puzzle was first suggested by Nouri Khalifa around 2009. Nouri's prototype was based on eight cubes with holes, and a stick to turn pairs of cubes. In 2010, Sigurd suggested a similar type of motion in a post at the Twisty Puzzles Forum. It was Mike Armbrust who first proposed a proper Rubik's style mechanism for this concept.
This puzzle was 3D-printed using nylon-powder SLS technology, which explains its price. It is the very first prototype, costing its designer and maker a lot of money to create. Please do not confuse it for a cheap mass-produced puzzle.
