Hi Shapeways fans,|
Even Less Gears! is a variation of Meffert's Gear Cube, replacing eight geared edges by non-geared ones.
As Even Less Gears! has only four geared edges, four faces can make quarter turns like a Rubik's Cube, whereas the fifth and sixth face are coupled through the gears. However, one scrambled, more faces get coupled. The fact that sometimes faces are coupled and sometimes not, makes this puzzle arguably even harder than Gear Cube Extreme.
Watch the YouTube video (with bonus question).
Buy the eight add-on parts from my Shapeways Shop.
