Mirrored Rubik's Cube ready for challengers

Rubik's Mirror Blocks puzzle: no two blocks are identical, and instead of colors, each cube has a mirrored surface.

Hey, you there, seated to my left and across the cubicle. This one's for you guys. Lest you readers think I've found new pleasure talking to myself, I am actually dedicating this post to two of my Rubik's Cube-fixated colleagues. It is hilarious watching them trying to outdo each other on a rather frequent basis (mind you, they use timer clocks as well) before slamming down their cubes on the desk to signal the completion of the puzzle.

Enter the new Rubik's Mirror Blocks puzzle, which should up the ante a bit. No two blocks are identical, and instead of colors, each cube has a mirrored surface. So I guess the tried-and-tested formula of solving the puzzle no longer applies. The cube is supposed to be available in Japan in the next couple of weeks at about $20. Not too much to ask for a few more moments of hilarity, I guess.
