Product Description
 This superb puzzle designed by Jos Bergmans exemplifies everything that I love about interlocking cubes. We share a passion for complex 4x4x4 designs, and Jos, like Tom Jolly, has a real talent for inventing puzzles with clever solutions.

In Jos' own words:
  "There is bunch of engineers at my office that are totally into puzzles, so I give them the puzzle pieces and they try to assemble it. The key measurement here is time: how long does it take them on average to solve the puzzle. When I started out designing (Four Critters, Six Spoons etc), it took them just a minute or two to solve a puzzle. That is when I discovered Tom Jolly's puzzles (it does not get any better than "Twist The Night Away"). Adding rotations to my designs made the puzzles more complex, and it took my colleagues longer and longer to solve the puzzles. 
Currently, a puzzle like "Pivot" can keep them busy for about 40 minutes on average. This solve-time competition keeps me on the edge, and pushes me to find new ways of making the puzzle more difficult."

This puzzle is the first in a new larger format based on 8 mm unit cubes giving a 3.2 cm solved cube. The interior of each piece is hollow but the pieces still feel strong and handle well. If the pieces had been solid a puzzle of this size would cost over $50 to print.

I have started experimenting with dyeing my puzzles and, as you can see, the tests went well. If you would be interested in receiving a pre-built and dyed version of this puzzle, or any of my other cubes, please visit the main shop page and use the 'Send message' link  under microcubology logo.
