Wow! As always, Bram and Oskar have made some amazing puzzles. I love the concept of 'fairly twisted' and if somehow I manage to get my hands on one, I'd be very interested in coming up with a solution. Bram, will either of these puzzles be sold in the future?

According to the description, they are being sold on Shapeways. Though, its $355, which is rather high.

I think it would be good if someone made a deal with Bram and Oskar to cast these puzzles cheaper.

he has the coolest accent I've ever heard. His puzzles are also really creative and I'm sure they are fun to play with.

Bram's Black Hole is brilliant! It is to a Rota-Cubes, what a 3x3x3 is to a 2x2x2.
I cannot wait to see his designs this August in USA, but I am itching to get one now!!!

I'm 100% positive that if you ask Oskar to make such a deal he'll take it.

There are plans to hopefully make a run of cheaper fully assembled 3d printed ones in the future, by doing a bulk discount. We'll see how that goes. We are of course very open to other people doing casts.

Bram's Black Hole occurred to me within a few minutes of the first time I ever played with a puzzle similar to Peter's Black Hole. Rotacubes came later, because I think that's actually a better puzzle to play with, but you probably have to play with both of them to appreciate that subtlety.

TomZ's right. I was all set up to start producing the rotacubes for them, but then my life changed, so I had to send the masters back and unfortunately back out of the deal. BTW, their deal was very fair.

The fairly twisted should really be masse-produced at a relatively lower price, maybe $50-$75. I'm really not a fan of sliding puzzles, so I'm not commenting on the black hole. Still, you have to give him credit for thinking of this stuff.
