I will buy one for Iris, Kersten Meier's widow.
She's a really good friend. And one for me ;)

I saw this on shapeways and wondered if it was going to be prototyped soon. I guess it has been!

Grigr, you truly are the master at micro puzzles. I'm looking forward to a micro 7x7x7 :lol:

One question: Why does Tony make threads for all of these instead of you? (3x3 micro, tetraminx micro, tetrahedron micro threads were all made by Tony Fisher)

Just wondering why, not that it makes any difference at all, just wondering :?

Tony's the one who buys the prototypes. Therefore he has all the topics, and more information is included in a topic made by him.

Sometimes grigr hasn't actually got one himself. Plus I guess I am around more often. I am happy to give him free promotion for such great puzzles.

I love the fact that the thickness of the stickers is noticable because of how small the puzzle is :lol:
