Finally, I get to share these pictures I have been sitting on from my sticker tests:

This is a really well designed and built puzzle. Everything one might expect from an Adam / Aleh collaboration :)

Dave

P.S. Pinoycuber27: Aleh has really big hands, so puzzles he holds look small :)

That looks so great! I have a question though. Does it really work like the applet does? I mean the centes can be turned individually right? because in the applet the centers always stay fixed and a side turns around it only. So only along the perimeter a turn drags pieces from the centers with it. The centers are therefore "immune" to rotation.
I always wondered how that would be turned into a real mechanism.

The centers can not be turned individually.

Dave, please don't make the monster from me. :lol:
A size of my hands is absolutely normal.
On the picture is optical illusion: my camera was on MF mode. :D

I think the Gigaminx is one by Adam, like on the right on the picture below.

Aleh built the first Circle Cube in 2007. This, I assume, inspired the Crazy cubes, which were first shown about two years later.

This design looks like an astronomical instrument!
(can it calculate the next full moon? LOL)

Nice one Aleh, the mechanism must be exceptional once again!
