A folding puzzle similar to Rubiks Magic implemented with tetrahedrons instead of square plates.

This puzzle consists of 10 tetrahedrons. Each of these tetrahedrons are made from 4 triangular plates. Each tetrahedron is colored in red, blue, yellow and green. The tetrahedrons are connected with strings comparable to the plates of the original Rubiks Magic. Every tetrahedron is always connected to two of its neighbors. Just the edge where they are connected can be altered.
The author considered other numbers of tetrahedrons and settled for 10 as a compromise between to trivial variants (6 tetrahedrons) and variants to hard to handle with 12 tetrahedrons.
