Four Cubes is Ichiro's follow up to his brilliant Three Cubes puzzle. This puzzle features two pairs of identically shaped pieces, each embedded with magnets similar to the Three Cubes puzzle. The challenge, in this case, is to make four individual cubes, each connected to the neighboring cube with no more than a half-face; so far two such assemblies have been found. A secondary challenge is to find a solution that creates two bars of equal length. Very tricky, and a worthwhile follow up to Three Cubes!

I love Eric's boxes and complex puzzles, but sometimes it's nice to enjoy the elegance and simplicity of a solidly built put-together like this. Magnets make for good fiddling and (bounded) exploration. Recommend the whole series of Cubes - plenty of the unexpected to be found. In fact, my 6 year old son took 3 Cubes and 4 Cubes and within a few minutes had found a stable (but not completely magnetically-joined) 4x4x4 voxel cube to be made out of the combined pieces. Can you find it?
Great puzzle, well made, and beautiful. Thanks!
