This Square Folding Plate Puzzle (which is based on Rubik's Magic mechanism,
but uses a totally different configuration) is using the "Frame" shape (first made
by Juozas Granskas), with a new twist.

So.. have you ever seen the "Frame" theme taking a cubic shape? Well, now yes!
And not only it can take a cubic shape, but it can also look like a Love Bunny!

In the video I am demonstrating how to go from a cute Bunny Girl (pink) to a Bunny Boy (blue):

Notice the efficient theme which is employed that uses the ears (twice) in both solutions!
I was going to have this ready last Easter, but was too busy and it got delayed.

Can you feel the love?

PS. This video is also a proof of how much I think along the way before every move
(I do the same with all puzzles), which is why I am hopeless in speedsolving. :lol:

You visits your roots, don't you?
Why build high-dimensional puzzles if one can build magics.

Making magics make me feel like having a natural instinct. I have many more ideas,
but right now I have also ran out of tiles, strings, and... time!

You should actually do a magic with a panda pattern. :P

Hmmm... you just gave me some interesting idea! ;)

i.e. a Panda would require a cute "hugging" theme, with not two,
but *four* tiles being extended. Therefore, a ten-tile magic or an
eleven tile myth (with a head) will do the trick... (correspondingly
M(10,2,0) and M(11,0,0) with respect to the closed loop classification).

LOL stop giving me ideas guys!!!

:lol:
