A fully functioning Rubik’s Cube made from real ice

This fully functioning Rubik’s Cube was made from ice by professional puzzle maker Tony Fisher… eight corner pieces and twelve edge pieces of solid ice, along with six center pieces made from ice, plastic, and metal. See it twist and turn, and see it form thanks to backwards melting footage.

How did Fisher construct the puzzle? In the video below, he makes silicone rubber molds to freeze and assemble each of the Rubik’s Cube ice parts:

Plus: Footage of ice blocks melting backwards, The Birth of a Snowflake (A snowflake melts in reverse), music made on hand-carved ice instruments, and Power of Optics: A light-powered Rube Goldberg machine.
