About this Product

Shift Happens is a meshing-gear puzzle in the same vein as Pentafold and Gear Fold. Bram Cohen wanted a set of six gears with an unequal number of teeth. After some discussion, he proposed the numbers 10-20-16-12-18-15. The initial idea was to have the gears in a triangle, but the gear set would not mesh that way. The alternative was a hexagonal pattern. As Pentafold and Gear Fold are rather floppy due to their hinges, Shift Happens uses a shifting mechanism similar to Gear Shift, but flat instead of spatial.

@Genqueerian Yes, it was Dilbert. Thanks for the compliment about the mechanism. It was difficult to design and I am quite happy about the result.

Was the comic you mentioned Dilbert? I remember a strip where he Invents a method to interact with other universes, chaos theory is mentioned (by catbert I believe) and he fires it up anyways, uttering that phrase. One of my favorites, actually. The mechanism looks very cool!
