Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Geared Kites was commissioned by Jared McComb. It is a shapemod of the Geared Mixup puzzle. This shapemod has the property that the puzzle retains its shape after a quarter turn, unlike Geared Mixup. Its stickering makes it highly confusing to solve the puzzle.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

It is very eye appealing. It would be a shame if this weren't mass produced.

I hope one of these geared mixups gets mass produced someday, the gear cubes are so fun. I also hope we get to see new gearing mechanisms in the future :)

Fantastic work Oskar! I desperately want to see stickerless geared mixup ghost cube, or even a regular geared ghost cube! How does one go about commissioning one?

Thank you! Please contact me about this privately. Note that the less challenging or innovative the mechanical design or puzzle, the more I charge. This one just requires a few boolean intersections and lots of boring filleting/meshing work, so expect some prohibitive pricing :-).

Great! Then I'd like to commission you to design a ... ... why am I struggling to imagine anything that you might find challenging? :(
