So Oskar let me borrow the geared mixup to try and modify and make it better. The first thing I did was tighten all the screws that turned the gears and added a spring underneath on of the corners

Here was the result: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpKWcHRMNdo

The second thing I did was use SUPERGLUE to add a layer of thickness to some of regions of the parts to counter-act the tolerancing, this worked incredibly well. The puzzle is perfectly stable and near fingertrickable

I will post a more in-depth video and explaination soon

That had me on the floor laughing. Literally.








Okay, not quite literally, but still.
