This is a mobius strip of Level 1 or Super Mario Bros. The whole level is wrapped around itself in a single surface, and poor Mario begins and ends at the same spot every time :(
All the elements from the level are there: every mushroom, turtle, cloud and star. They are all carved out of the surface at different heights, which looks fantastic when you have a light coming from the side, and each block casts a shadow.
It's a great piece to have on your desk, or to hang from a string to let it spin around.
NOTE: This is just the black "eye" and "hat" parts of the ring.
You must also order ”GLaDOS Ring (White "Half" of Ring)” to have all the parts to make the ring.
The two part version comes 90% colored.
(You still need to paint the yellow and red eye dots on the black part)
The two parts just snap together. You can lock the 3 parts together with some super glue.

This is an altered version of the gearbox model available from the ShapwaysMechanical page. The parts have been perforated in some spots to be slightly more streamlined and also a little cheaper to produce too.
No assembly required, though the middle set of gears must be snapped down into position in order to engage the surrounding gears. I assume this was built into the design to keep larger gaps during the printing process.
