cubeWhile some of us out there think that the standard Rubik’s Cube is really tough to solve (without having to refer to a How To guide on the Internet no matter how tempting it might be), here is something from master puzzle maker Oskar van Deventer that will have your brains oozing out from your ears. We’re talking about a 17x17x17 Rubik’s Cube which boasts a whopping 1,539 pieces.

Taking 10 hours of Oskar’s life to create, another 5 hours was spent to assemble this puppy. This is definitely an over-the-top puzzle which should have you stumped till the day you start pushing daisies. We’re sure that even Einstein will be sweating bricks (pun intended) when asked to solve this.
