Submission + - 4D analogue of Megaminx Puzzle (gravitation3d.com)

roice writes: "The crazy hypercubists who created the 4D and 5D Rubik's cubes (past Slashdot posts are here and here) have now developed a free working 4 dimensional software analogue of the Megaminx puzzle. Composed of 120 dodecahedral cells, the underlying structure is arguably the most beautiful of 4D geometrical shapes, with amazing symmetries and no analogue in dimensions higher than 4. Though some have already begun working on solutions for this "Hyperminx", it has yet to be solved by anyone. Also, when it comes to number of positions, it dwarfs the previous puzzles by many thousands of orders of magnitude!!"
