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. INVENTIONS The V-Cube 6 in solved state The V-Cube 7 in solved state Prior 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, right-angle conical surfaces whose axes of rotation coincide with the semi-axes of the cube. The patents for the cubes were awarded in 2004, and mass-production began in 2008. Verdes's mechanism allows cubes of up to size 11x11x11, as larger cubes have geometrical constraints.

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)

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
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. Puzzles like the Rubik's Cube
Rubik's Cube
which are manipulated by rotating a layer of pieces are popularly called TWISTY PUZZLES
