The classic Rubik's Cube is hard enough to solve; I don't know what designer Oskar van Deventer was thinking when he created the 17 x 17 x 17 Rubik's Cube. I mean, you would need a giant's set of hands just to try to figure out this impossible puzzle.
Of course, Oskar van Deventer is probably more excited that he has officially broken the record with how big his 17 x 17 x 17 Rubik's Cube is. Made using a 3D printer, it boasts over 1,539 individual pieces and was created for Shapeways.
