Collider Octahedron is a puzzle based on the geometry of the triakis octahedron. It has 24 axes of rotation; three on each face, or two at each edge of the cube. Each axis can stop at any of four places where adjacent turns can be made. But watch out for collisions between the pieces as they turn and get in each other's way! The additional pieces at the center of each face, and the fact that the axles are not stickered make this a harder puzzle to solve than the Collider Cube.
Other Items Needed:
If you want the puzzle to be black, you can dye the pieces yourself with a nylon dye such as RIT or Dylon.
