Triangular Super 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).

Compared to a Rubik's Cube, the stickers are divided into two triangles where one of them is brighter then the other.

The layout of the Triangular Super Cube was created in 2010 by Ortwin Schenker. The design was inspired by Georges Helm's Triangle Cube.
