It is not that difficult. The key is to use a toothpick or small tweezers to apply them, and a plastic razor blade helps in removing them quickly if necessary.

They do not have to be spot on perfect. In fact, some performers actually prefer to place them ever so slightly askew as it can create an optical illusion that the shell is twisted a very tiny bit which creates some "motion" to the static shell. Obviously this lends itself more to the standard RD than the 360 version.

At first I was being a a perfectionist when applying the stickers until I noticed the stickers on the factory supplied cubes are not perfect either but I had never noticed that. So goes to show you that no one will notice if they are off just a hair and it is easy to get them close enough.

Comparing the stickers made available by Rubik's Dream 360 and Easy Cube.

With easy Cube, the stickers can be quickly and easily applied in one go on the whole face (on all 9 pieces) of the cube in SOLVED condition - It's a DREAM. Whereas in Rubik's Dream 360 each sticker need to be painstakingly applied individually one piece at a time - It's a NIGHTMARE (as termed by the creator). However the same applies for Essay Cube if one needs to prepare a mixed cube.

Akira solve looks really good on demos....that one effect alone may make it worth it for the working pro... Smile

I have purchased Rubik 360. And awaiting delivery
But have the download for Akira Solve. It is incredible. Currently perfecting that.
But that addition in my humble makes it a much more complete package. For that could be sold on its own. It’s that good
My routine for cubes has just gone up another level

Yes any small cube you have will work.

This is so good to hear....nice to see you have something you can work on with cubes prior to delivery.

Not sure, but aren't there similar things to Akira solve previously released?
Seems like Jack Carpenter's Ridunkulous (sp?) very similar and maybe one or two others as well?
Not claiming any of them are better than the other as I don't know. Just curious.

Yes, Akira's 'Akira Solve' and Jack Carpenter's 'Rubikulous' are two very identical instant cube solve effects. However on the video I find Akira's teaching much better.

The changes are very similar. Jack Carpenter goes into a lot of detail but as Ustaad mentions
the Akira Solve teaching seems easier to follow.

Where can I see a demo video of Jack Carpenter's Ridunkulous?

The Akira solve is a different technique and different display so I wouldn't say they were identical. The Akira solve is done without a shake or toss etc and is a two handed solve which is also faster. Jack's Rubickulous solve uses Takamitsu's one hand technique but Jack has thought of a way to cut out one move and display before doing the solve which makes it fast, but you do need to hold with two hands for the display before you do the solve one handed. So in my mind totally different but both credit worthy.

Thanks for the link Ustadd that is a regular cube Non gimmicked ? Wow Do you know If the explanation is complicated for someone like myself that has NO knowledge of solving a cube ?
Thanks,

If you memorize the pattern you can do it. The only problem comes if a mistake happens. Then you need an out. Having Rubik dream in your "back pocket " can be used to salvage the routine if an error happens

Regular 'speed' cube yes. This is easy to do, but I do wish some of the explanations were done from a solved state as they can be a little difficult to follow/figure out which would be particularly irritating if you can't solve a cube as you will likely mess up when practising

Jeffrey, I see many posts from you asking if you need to be able to solve the cube for certain cube effects. The honest answer is YES, you do.
For almost any of the recent cube effects and routines, you’re just going to have to accept this fact.

But the good news is that it’s not that difficult to do. You don’t have to become a speed solver or memorize anything. You can use a cheat sheet, or even an app to solve it. Heck, you can take it apart and reassemble it. But I can guarantee that in the beginning of learning any of these effects you absolutely will make a mistake and need to get back to square one and start over. But after you get the routine down you will rarely if ever need to solve a cube.

My point here is that don’t let not being able to solve a cube keep you from doing these effects if you have a desire to. You can learn to solve it well enough in a very short time.
