We have published an article in 2016 about the World's largest order NxNxN Rubik's Cube-like twisty puzzle, the 22x22x22 cube created by corenpuzzle which exploded many times. This record was broken when the 33x33x33 cube came to live and announced today (Dec 2 2017).
The creator of the huge puzzle is Grégoire Pfennig, a French mechanical engineer whose YouTube channel is called Greg's Puzzles where he presents his custom twisty puzzle creations. He has some simple puzzles but also many complex mechanisms, like the Greg Master Pentultimate, the Greg's Rosette or the Hardest Rubik's Cube to solve which has color changing stickers.
