Hi Shapeways fans,

Caution Cube is a twisty puzzle like Rubik's Cube. Its edges have gears that connect opposite faces. Apply extreme caution when solving this novel twisty puzzle. The razor-sharp gears turn, so you can easily hurt yourself. Wear protective gloves and keep this puzzle away from children. This is not a toy!

Watch the YouTube clip.

Buy the puzzle.

Look at the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

P.S. Shapeways connaisseurs may recognize some similarities between this puzzle and David Bush' Gear Heart
http://www.shapeways.com/model/29355/gear_heart___140_.html
which is an original concept by Girigiriou from Japan

Hi Shawn,

> Geez man, how do you afford all these prototypes!

Puzzles are not my day-time job. These prototypes are an investment. I hope to sell the prototypes with some mark-up. For connaisseurs only, I am afraid.

Oskar,

That video is great! Is it really advisable to wear safety googles?

Despite unfriendliness, I would think this puzzle is easier to solve than a standard Rubiks cube. It seems similar to taking a standard Rubiks cube and only doing slice moves.

Ooo, I do love gears!

Someday I hope a major toy manufacturer picks up your whole line so that puzzle lovers around the world get to enjoy the fruits of your labors.

You know, I bet some smaller company could do the conversion to injection molded plastic. You could release them as collector items for a substantial, yet still more reasonable $50 or so each. I imagine that many educational stores, high-end toy stores, and executive shopping catalogs would love to carry such inventive puzzles.
