CAUTION: THIS IS ONLY THE SPHERE CORE!! This a spherical core for Mefferts' Mosaic Cube, designed by me. Several people have noticed that the mechanism is a bit "spongy". The issues are illustrated by Roxanne Wong in this YouTube video.

The cause of this spongyness, and the resulting less-than-optimal turning, is the large cavity inside the puzzle into which the pieces are pushed. Twisty Puzzle Forum contributor Burgo suggested to fill the cavity with a spherical core. This new spherical core fills the cavity completely, making the puzzle more stable.

Note that this model is only the new spherical core. You can buy the Mosaic Cube online from Mefferts.

I've had the Mosaic Cube since Mefferts produced them and I have never actually played with it. This really wasn't ready for mass production. I tried a different core last year. It still didn't work out. I finally was able to purchase this core and I must say, Oskar, you are amazing! Thanks for doing this.

Thank you so much Oskar. The Mosaic Cube definitely needed to be fixed.
