Panagiotis Verdes Panagiotis Verdes Panagiotis Verdes is the Greek inventor of the 6x6x6, 7x7x7, 8x8x8 and 9x9x9 Twisty Puzzles. He has also worked on new designs of every Twisty Puzzle from 2x2x2 to 11x11x11.[1] Inventions[edit]The VCube 6 VCube 6 in solved stateThe VCube 7 VCube 7 in solved statePrior to Verdes's invention, the 6x6x6 cube was thought to be impossible due to geometry constraints. Verdes's invention uses a completely different mechanism than the smaller Rubik's cubes; his mechanism is based on concentric, rightangle conical surfaces whose axes of rotation coincide with the semiaxes of the cube.[1] The patents for the cubes were awarded in 2004, and massproduction began in 2008. Verdes's mechanism allows cubes of up to size 11x11x11, as larger cubes have geometrical constraints.[1] References[edit]^ a b c Slocum, Jerry (2009).

Twisty Puzzles A combination puzzle, also known as a sequential move puzzle, is a puzzle which consists of a set of pieces which can be manipulated into different combinations by a group of operations. The puzzle is solved by achieving a particular combination starting from a random (scrambled) combination. Often, the solution is required to be some recognisable pattern such as 'all like colours together' or 'all numbers in order'. The most famous of these puzzles is the original Rubik's Cube, a cubic puzzle in which each of the six faces can be independently rotated. Each of the six faces is a different colour, but each of the nine pieces on a face is identical in colour, in the solved condition. In the unsolved condition colours are distributed amongst the pieces of the cube [...More...]  "Twisty Puzzles" on: Wikipedia Yahoo
