Using 3D printing technology, puzzle-maker Oskar van Deventer managed to create this insanely complex version of the cube. Oskar assembled the cube from 1539 individually dyed pieces, resulting in this oversize 5.5â€³ cube.
And since the design has actually been turned into a digital format, you can print one for yourself - for the low, low price of $2006.54 (USD).
As tempting as two grand sounds, Oskar (get out of that trashcan!), I'm going to have to decline. You see, I can't even solve two dice. DAMN YOU, SNAKE-EYES, WHERE'S THE OTHER '1'?!
Hit the jump for a close-up and Oskar holding the giant block like a proud father.

Thanks to Chrystal, who once spent four months solving an 18x18x18 cube. Congratulations, Chrystal, but you can never get that time back.
