As if the Rubik’s Cube Wasn’t Difficult Enough

Some sadistic puzzle inventor, namely Oskar van Deventer, decided that the traditional 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube — which can only be solved by removing the stickers and refashioning them in proper order — was too easy and so he went and invented a 17x17x17 version of the cube.  The Deventer Cube is composed of 1,539 individual blocks and measures 5.5″ on a side.  This cube looks basically unsolvable, not because it’s so unnecessarily complex, but because the blocks are dyed.  There’s no goddamn stickers to peel off and reorder.
