Step 5: Important Details/Finished Cube
I kept the 3 white sides so they converged at one corner, and same with the black (at the number 3)
The cube is actually more like a picture cube than a real sudoku cube, it just looks like one...so you will need extra algorithms to solve the cube:
M' U' M U (5 times)...turns top middle clockwise 1, and front middle counter clockwise 1
M U M' U' (5 times)...turns top middle counter clockwise 1, and back middle clockwise 1
note-M' is away from you
Hang on, this one is LONG
R U R' U R U U R' U R U R' U R U U R' U R U' L' U R' U' L U U R U' L' U R' U' L...turns top middle 2 times
thanks to abunai59 from Youtube with the video "How to Solve a Picture Rubik's Cube!!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xQ7qf0EAvY&feature=fvw
*EDIT: here is a way shorter algorithm for rotation of the top middle twice
U R L U2 R' L' U R L U2 R' L'
thanks go to Gonazar for the short one!
i use them, so they work
the cube even stands on its own
i had keys that were long, from an ergonomic keyboard, so i used the dremel tool to cut them (see picture 4)
thanks for reading, good luck, post your picks, and leave your comments and questions if you need anything!
