Arrow Cube

A Super Cube is a design variation of the Rubik's Cube which visualizes the orientation of side parts. Because of this, a Super Cube has 2048 times more positions than a regular cube (46/2 = 2048).

Arrows on opposite faces are oriented in opposite directions as on a Shepherd's Cube.

The layout of the Arrow Cube was created in 2010 by Walter Randelshofer.
