    Hi Shapeways fans,

    Rubik's Cube and the 14-15 sliding square puzzle are the most popular mechanical puzzles of the 20th and 19th century, respectively. What could be more obvious than combining those two great ideas?

    Here you see the resulting combination, a 2x2x2 Rubik's Cube with sliding square faces. The object is to scramble the puzzle and then to twist & slide the tiles back to their original position and orientation.

    Watch the YouTube video.
    Buy the puzzle from my Shapeways Shop.
    Read more at the Twisty Puzzles Forum.
    Check out the photos below.

    Enjoy!

    Very nice Oskar!!

    Has anybody figured out what parity constraints there are on this puzzle? Can any target configuration be reached?

    Hi Shapeways fans,

    I made a new version of Twist & Slide with stickered faces. This give the puzzle a more classic look.

    Enjoy the photos below.
