A bigger variant of Astrolabacus with six segments that but with six channels of beads.

Hexalabacus is the "obese" member of the x-labacus series. It was suggested by Pantazis Houlis. It iis a inspired by John D. Harris' classic Astrolabacus puzzle. Each of the six segments of Hexalabacus has six channels. The puzzle can be twisted, which results in a rearrangement of the channels. The beads slide through the channels. The object of the puzzle is to scramble it and then solve it.
Two months after the original Oskar presented another version with rainbow-coloured body pieces.
This is the fifth entry of a whole series of Astrolabacus-variants Oskar designed, starting with the Mastrolabacus.
