IQ Cubes Are Even More Impossible to Solve Than Rubik’s Cubes

I’ve never successfully solved a Rubik’s Cube–short of taking one apart, anyway. The IQCube, availble from toys.brando.con, isn’t going to help me any.
Whereas the standard Rubik’s Cube uses a 3-by-3 grid of color squares on each face. The 3x3x9 IQ Brick further divvys up the layers so that some of what would normally be single layers on a traditional Rubik’s Cube is divided into three movable layers, as shown in the above photo. So instead of having a 3-by-3 grid to deal with on a side, you end up with something way more complex.
Yeah, I’m not going to be able to solve this thing, either.
