Waltzing cubes

Lucas, who I know from math and CS, has an absurd number of Rubik's cubes. He has the standard cubes in every size from 2x2 to 5x5. He has combinatorically ridiculous 7x7 cube that probably takes days to solve. He also has variations like square one. In a few weeks, he'll get a package from Japan and in it will be a void cube. (How you would build something like that without breaking the laws of physics is beyond me.)

Years ago, Lucas also made a Rubik's cube waltz. This means: he scripted and raytraced the whole animation in POV-RAY and Mathematica. Props!
