    Hi Shapeways fans,

    Gear Planet was suggested by Ferdinand Lammertink. Ferdinand is best know as the inventor of several Thinkfun puzzles, including Backspin and Port-to-Port and recently Perilous Pipes by Popular Playthings.

    Gear Planet has 11 tiles. There is a gearing&sliding mechanism for scrambling the tiles. The object is to get them all back in order. Experts may recognize some similarity between the gearing of four tiles, and the up-and-down mechanism of Port-to-Port.

    Watch the YouTube video.
    Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.

    Check out the photos below.

    Enjoy!
