Description of the author:
I've very proud to present the finished Double Circle Real5x5x5. I've been working on putting a 3x3x3 inside a 5x5x5 off and on since November 2006. This is my second such design and I finally have a puzzle that works as intended. The notion of a 3x3x3 inside a 5x5x5 was first published in a Cubism For Fun (CFF) article called Hidden Cubes by Tony Fisher in July 1989. It was Tony's mention of this article here which sparked my interest in putting a 3x3x3 inside a 5x5x5. The first simulator which would let you play with and solve this puzzle was the program CubixPlayer2 made by Per Kristen Fredlund and released in April 2004. To my knowledge this is the first physical/functional and stickered version of this puzzle. The stickering was completed July 4, 2014. I just got the stickers for the third version of my Real5x5x5 this weekend so it should follow soon. The Puzzle has an 80 mm edge length and it weighs in at 262 grams
