No offesne but InZane ThingZ pretends to be the n°1 design studio when they haven't make any of their creations in 3D and they take inspration from other designers, in this case, Oskar, even though it doesn't have the same movement, but the same look.

video.

I do not consider any puzzle as "designed" when there hasn't been presented anything touchable.

I hate to go off topic, but I have to ask, wouldn’t something be considered designed once there is a design?
That being said, I don’t think it would be fair to say these puzzles have been made.

I totally agree. I feel though there must be a misunderstanding of wording since we all know that something that has been designed doesn't necessarily exist.

I just stumbled onto these folks on YouTube, and as far as I can tell, they haven't actually made anything but designs.

Very odd. I would think they would at least prototype something on shapeways or similar service and then put the video out.

Does anyone know of any actual physical puzzles these folks have made?

They did make one item that I would consider a puzzle, and that was their Dodecahedron:

They did offer a cash prize of $1000 to anyone who could solve it as well. I would however be very surprised if that were still the case.

Claus once told me he sometimes receives designs by guys who want him to print the first sample for them. Some of these designs are rejected by Claus because he is sure they wont work. Having a design is the second step after having the idea.

But I recognize that the word "designed" was misleading.
What word should I have used?
"implemented"
"completed"
"proven"
