This is madness! Sir, you must stop these ludicrous projects at once :lol: That must be a beast of a puzzle, how can you even lift it? You need big ***** to even attempt this! It looks a lot like a rugby ball - I bet you can't drop kick it over the posts though.

Good grief Claus! That is just nuts! :lol:

What an incredible puzzle. I look forward to seeing the video, after you've done a few months of weight training for it.

It for sure looks great (and massive)!

Is it bigger than my MazeBall (round 122mm)?

Wow.
Now I am happy that I haven't processed this thread yet.

I hope it weighs less than 1000 grams.

Reminds me of the first pic in the Things that aren't puzzles but look like they should be thread.

So it's a puzzle that looks like a non-puzzle that looks like a puzzle.

Great Dutch advertisement (for Claus' BigBall :-) ).

Let me translate for the non-Dutch (the advertisement):

From now on: cheap mobile calls to foreign countries

New: PrePaid International
Free calls to users of PrePaid International within the Netherlands.
Go to: t-mobile.nl/international

Wow! Now that is impressive! This is definitely one of the biggest twisty puzzles I have ever seen.

Nice Clock sticker variants in the video. Especially with the demo of the last one, with the German soccer logos, you can see that they must be much harder to solve than the standard one. I am using a solution lining up some of the clock hands on the puzzle to solve it, and this approach seems much more difficult with picture Clocks.

How did you open these Clocks and close them again for the sticker mods? The ones I have seen so far look like they cannot be opened without breaking the shells. :roll:

Are the 3D printed parts solid? Also, how hard would this need to be thrown to knock someone out? :lol: :lol:
