Over the Top is a 17 x 17 x17 Rubik’s Cube

by Mark R

For some reason, I just can’t get enough of Rubik’s Cube stuff. Remember the Rubik’s Slide Puzzle and the Gear Wheel IQ? Not to mention the Scruble Cube that combines the puzzle cube with everyone’s favorite puzzle game of Scrabble.

I don’t know why I am obsessed with this thing, perhaps it is because I am into tech things, and most people who are into tech things can solve that dang cube that I have never been able to solve.

I would like to see someone solve this particular cube, which was designed by Oskar van Deventer. It is a 17x17x17 puzzle cube printed using Shapeways, which I believe is a 3D printing place for specially made items like this one.

This is one of those times where I have to doubt whether the item I am reporting on is legitimate. After all, I don’t even know if there is a way to twist something that looks to be rather large.

Still, you got to like how it has a black frame around the edges. In case you doubt whether or not this is genuine or not, this 17 x 17 x 17 Rubik’s Cube, also known as Over The Top, will be on display at the New York Puzzle Party Symposium on Saturday, February 12th.

Wow, I got caught up with the 4×4, 5×5 and now 17×17? I wonder how long does it take to solve this one. Will there emerge another of these puzzle? how about 100X100? lol…but this is a very nice toy…
