Skewb Shift was suggested by Bram Cohen. It is a Skewb
version of Gear Shift
. When the puzzle is in its rest state, all gears can spin together. Skewb Shift can be pulled a bit apart in four directions.In the pulled-apart state, half of the gears can spin independently of the other half. The object of the puzzle is to scramble the gears and then get them reoriented again.
