Hi Shapeways fans,

Geared Hex is a hexagonal version of Bram's Cube. The hexagonal part turns similar to a Rubik's Cheese or a Rubik's UFO puzzle. The top and bottom layers are connected by a set of gears at the middle layer. The gears are split in half, which allows even more scrambling.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Twisty Puzzles Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

The second image above looks a bit like MC Escher's Reptiles

Hmmm.. I wonder if Escher and Rubik could be merged?

It's a great idea, and has been done once or twice before. Here's a good example: Escher Butterfly Pyraminx
