Snake Cube Puzzle

I saw some woodcraft supply displayed at the United Bookstore this afternoon, and one of them is this wooden cube puzzle. I knew it’s not a rubik’s cube because I have not seen a wooden version of the puzzle yet. Out of curiosity I bought the wooden cube at a price tag of P164.00.

Too excited, I already removed the chained pieces in the plastic container before I remember taking picture. The wooden cube turned out to be a snake cube puzzle. 

“The snake cube is a mechanical puzzle, a chain of 27 or 64 cubelets, connected by an elastic band running through them. The cubelets can rotate freely. The aim of the puzzle is to arrange the chain in such a way that they will form 3 x 3 x 3 or 4 x 4 x 4 cube.” From wikipedia
 


Mine is a 3x3x3 cube puzzle, now messed up waiting for me to solve it which I know I can’t without the help of the internet.
