A Torus with 7 segments and 4 slices that rotate around the torus unlike tricky disky with which it share the solving method.

This puzzle is a torus split into 4 slices with 7 segments, making this equivalent to a looping 4x7 sliding puzzle. The rotating pieces were made out of solid rails connected with flexible (TPU) "lace" colored connectors that allow them too stretch as the go around, getting wider and narrower as they go.
Solvingwise it is similar to Tricky Disky but the segments rotate around the torus. This is possible through flexible mesh-like insets.
The colour scheme is 7 colours, so the solved state is having 7 rings of solid colour all the way around, and the "true" solved state goes in rough rainbow order: Pink -> Red -> Yellow/Gold -> Green -> Blue -> Purple -> White.

Days after the original the inventor published version 2, this time printed in silver PLA material, and with several tweaks to the mechanism to make it a bit easier to manipulate. This version includes also a new design for the colored stretchy pieces, this time with a "star" concept. See images 4-5.
