### Super Cube 'Bandelow'

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 (4^6/2 = 2048).

You can create a Super Cube easily by yourself. All you need is a felt marker. The design shown on the left uses felt marker strokes to show the orientation of the side parts. Each stroke connects the sticker of a side part with the sticker of one adjacent edge part.
