Hi Shapeways fans,

Number Planet is a twisty puzzle, like the Rubik's Cube, based on the Mathieu 12 (M12) group from group theory. Prof. Igor Kriz published the concept of this puzzle in Scientific American July 2008.

Wow, another amazing mechanical device!

Also another amazingly expensive item! Laughing

I look forward to the day when objects cost 10 cents a CC, and I can afford to pick up a few copies of your work. Wink
