Petaminx Dodecahedral puzzle will drive you insane

You know those geniuses that can solve a Rubiks cube in like 20 seconds? This puzzle would drive even them insane. The Petaminx is a handmade puzzle by puzzle maker Jason Smith. It sort of resembles the Rubik’s cube.

It just happens to have twice as many sides and many more pieces to align. In all there are 975 parts and 1,212 stickers. It took mere 75 hours to build and that included the molding process and the placing each of those stickers by hand.

I’d be interested to see just how many Rubiks Cube geeks could actually solve this thing.
