    Ouch.

    Shift+9 to scramble it, and ctrl+click rotates the whole puzzle. Click on a section to rotate it.

    Er, enjoy...:D

    You mean that thing is actually solvable?!?!?!

    I usually have a pretty good ability to picture 3-D images in my head, but I can't even grasp this thing!!!!

    I can solve a regular cube in a couple minutes, but I can't even grasp yet how this thing moves. Maybe if I had some free time to play around with it, but still ... wow.

    :eek:

    Good practice, perhaps, for starting to think about our 10 dimensional universe (or is it 11?).

    Apparently, yes, hit 's' and watch it solve itself.

    Ooh, well discovered. Interestingly, if you hit shift+9 to scramble it, it solves it surprisingly quickly even though it looks incredibly difficult!

    But if you hit shift+9 a few times it takes ages to solve it. :D

    Is there a good way to do video capture of what's going on on screen? Or at least just a web browser?

    I just scrambled it a whole bunch and hit S, and it took ~3 minutes to solve itself...at least 100 moves. :eek:

    Here are three hints to help get people started:

    1) Each individual little cube does something different.
    2) If you click one of the little cubes and then click the cube exactly opposite from it on the mini rubix cube it will reverse the move.
    3) If you click the same little cube three times it will end up back in its original place.

    My browser is chocking on showing the moves of the 4d-ness. The Sawtooth just can't keep up with it's complexity.

    It's the tesseract version of Rubick's Cube! I wonder what Madeline L'Engle would have to say about this? :D
