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!!"

No need to be envious though, because here are pictures and simple instructions to help you make your own. The creator's game oversizing hobby has extended to making huge Rubik's Cubes as well."
