The Helicopter Cube is a twisty puzzle with slices allowing all 12 edges of the puzzle to rotate. Each edge can be rotated 180 degrees to scramble and solve the puzzle. A special move is possible after a partial rotation, allowing the puzzle to "jumble", a very special property making the Helicopter Cube unique among mass produced puzzles. Hand made versions have been much sought after by collectors. The Helicopter Cube was conceived by Adam G. Cowan in 2005, but wasn’t built until 2006, when Adam discovered that 3D printing could be used to realize the parts.
"The Helicopter Cube is highly sought after as it isn’t just a shape modification of an existing puzzle, nor taking a puzzle to a higher level. You can throw out all your existing algorithms, as you need to start over! This one is all new! (And it Jumbles!)" -- Derek Bosch (puzzle designer and collector)
"A few puzzles are so clear in concept that they aren’t ’invented’ so much as ’discovered’. The Helicopter Cube is one of the few designs which we can be sure would be known to any technologically alien species we might encounter." -- Bram Cohen (Inventor of BitTorrent)
This puzzle was produced by Jason Smith, conceived by Adam G. Cowan
