Three circles on one line, each allowing 180 turns with very deep intersections.

This is one of a series of three entries, collectively named "Rainbow Looper" by the inventor.
It is a series of 2D Puzzles made up of at least 3 intersecting circles in which you can only make 180 turns. The individual puzzle distinguish itself from each other by the number of circles and the depths of the intersections.

This entry is about the Hyper Looper. Its intersection is even deeper than the Super Looper, causing another new piece in the shape of a petal to be added and all the previous ones change their shape in a similar way to how the previous ones did of the Super Looper.
The inventor made three variants with 3, 4 and 5 circles. Hyper Looper 4 is similar in resolution to the normal Super Looper. Hyper Looper 5 is more similar in resolution to the Super Looper 4 and therefore the normal Looper, however in this case the petals have two orbits and the ones with an even position cannot be placed as easily as the odd ones. This would require a 6th circle.

The black dots are placed on the pieces to show their orientation. The outermost pieces (the triangles) are all white so they do not to give clues as to whether the circles are in their correct position or rotated 180 and about the order of colours.

The inventor uses the pseudonym "El Cubitero".
