When it comes to toys, there is always that emphasis on making some toys educational or at least something that can be challenging to the mind.

What better toy to pose a mental agility challenge than the Rubik’s cube? Throughout the ages, there have been many players left puzzled after attempting to beat the regular, six-sided, 54-cube version of the infamous puzzle toy.

But if you thought that was tough enough of a try, get ready for one Rubik’s cube that will be close to impossible to complete.

According to Gizmodo, there is a new super challenge in the form of the Atlasminx.

It is the latest creation by the YouTube channel corenpuzzle, and it draws its inspiration from the Rubik’s cube…but it has a twist.

Rather than a normal six sides, this custom-made puzzle piece has 12 width edges that measure almost a foot long. It was created using 19 layers of 3D-printed plastic that were attached to its hollow core. As a result, you’re left with a 17-pound Rubik’s cube that has 4,863 colored blocks.

Not only is the size of the puzzle piece a challenge to try to solve mentally, but it also weighs quite a bit. Topped off with its strange shape, it is more than a little difficult to try and solve.

So, we seriously doubt that this will be something solvable in the space of one minute or less. Still, if you’re able to solve it at all it’ll probably be enough of an impressive achievement.

Corenpuzzle has put out a video as to how the Atlasminx works. You can watch the video below:
