Have a look at the following image. It brings together two of my
favorite subjects: Fractals and Rubik’s cubes.

I have no idea what’s behind it. Has someone actually built a fractal
twisty puzzle? If not, would that be possible? I expect that a working
fractal cube would feel very much like a 3D version of Roice’s Magic
Tile in which each area is repeated across space but at multiple scales
in addition to translations and rotations.
