Hey everyone,

Today I received my Mirror Borg puzzle from Heiowge, and I have to say it's one of the most interesting puzzles I have got in my collection.

The reason why I'm making this topic is to say that Heiowge's work is a force to be reckoned with. Nowadays, everyone makes puzzles as complex as possible, or attempt to design a simple mechanism. Even hand made builds can be made to quite complex standards. But Heiowge's work is completely different to that. His is art. He puts in a lot of detail to the puzzles, and they show it. The cube was designed to be a piece of art, but now it's all about the complexity. Puzzles don't have to be complex to be beautiful. So I'm just making this topic to inform people that more puzzles should be designed for artistic reasons, not complex. Thanks Heiowge. An astonishing puzzle.

You're welcome. And thankyou for the comments. I have to point out though, that the centre in the last pic needs rotating. Don't forget, it functions as a picture cube as well! :D

The Mirror Borg is an amazing puzzle, definitely deserving of its price tag. :D
