~~~ ~~~ [up] Subject: magic variants

1. My crack puzzle team has added four squares to "MAGIC". This puzzle has
much more variability in making planar patterns (I count doubled up squares) ,
while retaining the same flavor as the original puzzle. Some examples:

XXXXXX            XXXX              XXXX                     XXXX
XXXXXX            XXXX              X    X                     XXXX
                       XXXX             X    X                     XX
                                           XXXX                     XX

Has anybody else changed the number of squares?

2. Has anybody speculated on Rubik's next puzzle based on this hinge mechanism?
My puzzle team thinks a equilateral triangles instead of squares has potential.
Any comments?
