Dual Rings is on the market



This is my 'Dual Rings' puzzle, the result of a bizarre collaboration between myself and Oskar where I came up with a completely abstract puzzle and he came up with an unexpected mechanism for it. It's going on the market produced by Hanayama now, and there are a few copies you can buy immediately (see video info for details).

misterajc: Cast Marble Puzzle

After playing with the cast marble puzzle at Turkeyfest, I ordered one, and it arrived yesterday. It's pretty and a pleasing tactile experience, definitely nice to have on a coffee table or mantelpiece. There are a couple of spots on mine where the marble catches on the frame a bit, but I expect that will loosen up with use. Solving it took a few minutes, but since I was not paying attention when it came apart, putting it back together took significantly longer. Now I have the technique down and I can do it right away, so I have the fun of inflicting it on other people.

Nice work Bram.
