Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Jumble Prism is the second jumbling puzzle ever brought into existence (first published was Helicopter Cube / Bevel Cube), and the first jumbling puzzle with non-platonic geometry. The puzzle can be considered the "godfather of all jumbling puzzles", as it has the most basic regular geometry for a twisty puzzle where all moves are jumbling moves.

Bram Cohen invented this puzzle. He told Oskar about it at the beach of Surfer Paradise in Australia at the occasion of the International Puzzle Party, August 2007. Several more and less successful prototypes have been made in a collaboration between Bram and Oskar, prototyped by George Miller. Finally, this is a well-working prototype, turning and jumbling the way Bram originally envisioned it.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

Nice work Oskar! I for one have been waiting to see an excellent version of this puzzle for some time now. :)

Just to clarify though, it was David Pitcher who made the first jumbling puzzle, which was his version of the Rua, in 2003. You can see it here.

Don't many of Matt's puzzles like the Rua, Toru and 24-Cube predate the Jumble Prism? The 24-Cube is from August 2008, and the Tora and Rua were made even earlier than that.

According to the museum all of those puzzles were made in 2008. Nevertheless, I don't know when the first prototype for the Jumble Prism was, so I suspect that they are all pretty close to each other.

Nice!!!

Oskar over on YouTube you state:
Quote:
Yes. The puzzle can be restored to a its triangular-prism shape without being solved.

Could you post a picture of such a state? I'm also curious how many moves are required to reach a different triangular-prism shape state.

Carl
