Product Description
This is an assembly puzzle made from the incredible 4D object called the 24-Cell. That object is the only regular polytope in 4-dimensions without any analog in any other dimension. It is composed of 24 regular octahedra with three surrounding every edge. This puzzle is constructed from a perspective projection down into 3-space which is why the cells are different sizes. The ones towards the center are smallest because they are furthest away in 4-space.

The six pieces of this puzzle are the result of attaching groups of adjacent cells in such a way as to make it as difficult as possible to assemble them into the full object. This was done though custom software written to search though all possible combinations cells for pieces that have the maximal number of wrong ways to adjoin them. The completed puzzle is a handsome model of this very special mathematical object.

Difficulty: Very hard.
