Are you the kind of puzzler that is looking for a unique challenge?
Are you looking for a piece of interactive art to brighten your desk and help you through a tedious Thursday afternoon?
Then check out the new Corner Pocket puzzle from designer Justin Eplett!
"I designed this puzzle to not only provide an interesting solving experience, but also produce interesting shapes en route to returning it to a solved state.
At first glance it looks deceptively easy to scramble and solve, with the incorrect assumption that it turns like a regular 2x2x2. The true challenge is quickly revealed after a few simple twists radically alter the cubic shape.
The unpredictable shape changes are produced by a concept called ’bandaging’, combined with a shape transformation technique often referred to as ’modding’. The puzzle is actually a 3x3x3 cube with pieces fused (’bandaged’) together and extended to produce a simpler looking puzzle.
There are several different solved states that are all indistinguishable from one another, meaning there is more than one solution.
I had a lot of fun solving this puzzle and hope you do too!" - Justin
