The designers Aleksandr Marusenko and Felix Perez presented the puzzle during IPP29 (in San Francisco) and DCD 2008 (in Eindhoven) and sold some prototypes. Back then they announced the start of production for 2010. In 2011 it became commercially available.

The spheres come in five different levels of difficulty with ten color schemes in five different levels. See the captions for each image.

The sphere has a diameter of ca. 80 mm and is lightweight. The pieces are neither stickered nor painted but made with the desired color.
