Daedalus by Gregory Benedetti is an utterly unique masterpiece of design. Brilliantly creative and brutally tricky, Daedalus hides its secrets well. The beautiful exterior gives no clue to the sheer pandemonium hiding inside. What appears to be a simple cube is an interlocking maze that continually changes its state with rotations, dead ends, and deception. Simple disassembly is a challenge; reassembly is genuinely an accomplishment.

I have an original copy of this awesome design that was made years before Eric and his CD team produced them. I'm always impressed with CD craftmanship, but I couldn't imagine it possible to love the CD Daedalus any more than the original. FYI, it is possible and then some!! All the pieces move like buttah and the final assembly shape is perfectly square and flawless. Way to step it up, CD Team!!!
I’m stuck with pieces sticking out at all angles, but I am so happy that the Cubic Team has decided to remake this design. I’ve been hunting for a Daedalus for eons and am so glad that I got such a superbly made edition. It’s great fun to analyse and just as much fun to randomly fiddle with. An easy 100%. Well done Mr Benedetti and Mr Fuller.
