There's easily 20 or 30 dollars total on that table there behind the stickered teraminx. I'm willing to take them all off your hands for about twice that. ;)

Amazing, beautiful work Drewseph. Awe inspiring.

But... I can't help notice the shadows on this picture:
Image
The bottom right unstickered Teraminx' shadow cuts off right where the top right starts (top of the shadow), and there is a small line of lighter pixels between the shadow and the top/right puzzle

The bottom center has no shadow where the others do.

Note also the strong shadow on the bed of only the bottom left Teraminx, not the top left.

It isn't April 1st, but perhaps some legs are being pulled?

Dave

P.S. We need to get one of my Kilominx in the family picture ;)

Dave,

AWESOME!

I left that little bit of shadow cut short just for someone like you =)

Its fair to say that yes that picture is Photo-shopped and there are only 3 assembled Teraminxs' and only one of them is stickered ^_^ However, in 2 months this image won't be a lie anymore. think of this as a picture from the future.

Wow, if you put one of them on ebay, wonder how much would be the final price. 1500? 2000? 3000? or more?

Holy crap. It's beautiful :shock:

Sure, there may be "only" three (as if 3 is a small amount or something haha), but the three that you have are great and it looks even better when stickered. Turns like a pro, too!

*Only* three. Geez, you've been slacking off.

Maybe this whole pastic injection molding is a big waste of money. Why spend tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars on steel molds when you can just buy Drewseph a Jolt and a Pizza and pump out a Teraminx in an evening!

Dave ;)

when I finish the only 6 others I plan on making I will sell them, no sooner. The current one will be auctioned off first week of September some time.

Also it should be noted that its impractical to mass produce these. the assembly time alone if ridiculously long and I don't think I can sell it, since it uses a modified V-cube mech. though the patents limit it to a cube, it just seems wrong without asking Verdes about mass production

You design super-complex puzzles, build them at super-human speeds and bring us pictures from the future.

What if you sent one to Verdes and had him look at the designs and then maybe have him make some.

I've heard that they have no interest in the dodecahedron.
It's unfortunate

Why don't we just start with the gigaminx and see how that goes? It would be a little easier to make.

Slow down, we dont need to be rushing into things! :D

I'm just saying that the it makes sense to release the gigaminx before the teraminx, as the 5x5 was before the 7x7. :D

What a beauty! Superlative failure error!

It makes the gigaminx look like child's play..... and the megaminx like baby's play!

The stickering is great, the round corners add to it. Must have taken absolutely ages.

Congratulations on such a beautiful result.
