The Curious Case of Harsha’s Skewb

This is an interesting incident that took place last week. My friend Harsha is fond of Rubik’s cubes. He has a collection of different members of the Rubik’s family and he takes pride in solving those things. He has recently ordered this new Image result for skewbone called Skewb.

I was fascinated by a Rubik’s cube from a long time, but never solved one. To my sheer surprise, I have found that people use some sort of algorithms to solve these.

Coming back to the Skewb, this is how it looks.
