Hi Shapeways fans,

Today, I completed Unlucky Twisty, a cubic 1x2x13 twisty puzzle. Its telescopic design was inspired by Ola Jansson. Despite its high order ("Rubik's Cubes" currently go up to 9x9x9) the puzzle is fairly easy to solve.

You can buy the puzzle at
http://www.shapeways.com/model/30838/unlucky_twist.html

See the YouTube clip at

Below are some photos of the puzzle.

Enjoy!

Oskar

WOW !

Amazing, I looked at the first picture and thought - what's the point of that - it'll only turn in one axis.
Then I looked at the second picture Shocked

What physical size is it?
How thick are the ribs on the stacked cylindrical mechanism?

Hi Ian,

The puzzle is 2x4x26 cm. The cylinders are a bit under 1mm thick.

Very nice! I hope Ola is getting a patent for this design.

How about a smaller version for less $$? 2x1x7?
