The hottest topic should be Fangshi cube. Fangshi is a new outstanding of cube world in 2013. Nobody has thought that it can become so popular in such a short time. This should due to the efforts of Fangshi designers and factory.
The first version of Fangshi is Fangshi shuangren 3x3. It has been prepared for about six months before it came out. The Fangshi designers declaimed production of Shuangren in February 2013. While there is some obstruct in mold modification and adjustment. So the production is put off.

Shuangren is not a perfect cube, but it is a good cube! It is loved by many cubers.
After Shuangren, there is better Fangshi cube coming out --- Fangshi Shishuang 2x2, 50mm and 55 mm version.'Shishuang' means 'the only one'. There is a sentence about the cube “世间& #26080;难&#20107 ;,双& #24433;旦&#22805 ;同”. It means 'Nothing is impossible to a willing heart, all the difficulties are the same.'
The 50mm and 55mm size is not the original version. The original version is 51mm and 54mm decided by the designer Mr. HN. As last Fangshi Factory and Mr. HN decided to make the cube as 50mm and 55mm after discussion. Fangshi 2x2 is developing in the base on Shuangren 3x3. But they have big difference. Shishuang differs from Shuangren by protective-edge corner. In addition, Shishuang 2x2 has six plastic color chips instead of stickers (50mm), and it can be changed 2.5mm inner edge cap to be Fangshi 55mm 2*2 with stickers (approximately 75g).
Shishuang has black, white and transparent. The black and white colors are designed aiming at speed ​​twist. While the transparent will be a big gift for cubes collectors. It is 55mm and transparent PC body, and there are 6 color-shape chips on every side. That makes it looking marvelous.

This is not the end of 'Fangshi Wave'. At the end of 2013, Fangshi also announced a new cube: Fangshi (方是) Baijie (百&# 25463;).

Baijie is another design which cost a lot effort by Funs designers. Many cubers should already have a good impression by Funs’ corner piece. They had an consumption when they designed Funs ShuangRen ---- If the corner piece design can be used on edge piece? Finally, this has been realized on new cube (Baijie). Baijie has its unique structure called Separated pathway structure of 3*3 Puzzle. And it has the best anti-pop designed: Triple Anti-Pop Design.
Fangshi designers said Baijie(百&#25463 ;) will be the one that has the least chance to pop in 3*3 version. It is not “one of”, it is “the”.
After the annoucement, most cubers are looking forward to own this excellent cube in hand.
