There is a second puzzle for today:

It's plastic triangles joined by a special plastic/paper. it changes shape and it moves easily.
The puzzle is pretty nice i've made the stikers handly.

I'll make a new one soon with a painted picture by hand.

There are a lot of pictures to help you to see how it works.

I'll put a video soon too.

there is a lot of possibilities.

I'm thinking if i should make a mass production of this kind of puzzles.
There can be a lot different shapes like squares hexagones and much others.
It's very fun to play with! :D

Please tell me some comms, suggestions and Thanks a lot for watching.

I love folding puzzles! Nice work on putting together one with an interesting and cool-looking pattern.

I believe this is called a "Piano Hinge Dissection"

Dissections using right traingles in multiples of 4 were patented by Binary Arts at some point.

I have one in my collection like this made by Binary Arts. Here is the patent:

http://www.google.com/patents?id=y-UkAA ... +5,299,804

Mine is purple and yellow. If everyone is unfamiliar with it, I may be able to post a photo later.

I like this video:

http://www.cs.purdue.edu/homes/gnf/book3/animsf481.mpg

And this paper is genius!
http://www.cs.purdue.edu/homes/gnf/book3/stackfold.pdf

Once again, nice work on this, and I can't wait to see what you do next.

EDIT-
I almost forgot! This book looks neat, but I haven't read it.

That looks great! I love folding puzzles and would probably be interested in getting something like this (depending on the price.) Do you plan of selling any?

With or without hinges and strings, folding puzzles are always brilliant.
And it is always nice to see that someone is picking up from the spot where others had stopped.

Good luck with your lovely designs!

I've made a short plan of the puzzle:

Attachment:
File comment: each two piece is joined just on one side like a hinge. This way, they twist just in one side.

In my own, it's a flexible paper/plastic for the "hinges"

THanks for asking :)

Look too the io's message it's very very interesting and very well explained

HI!

I've made the second paper-shifter! This one is only for Jesse! The colours are much more brighter than the first one, and the design is more interesting. See by yourself!
