I am proud to present my new puzzles:

Twister I and Twister II.
Image Image

Twister I Checkerboard and Scrambled
Image Image

Twister II Checkerboard and Scrambled
Image Image

Twister I and II after the same moves
Image

Twister I Top
Image

Twister II Top
Image

You can see my new logo on the last two photos. Can anyone figure out what it is? I hope to eventually be able to print the logo directly onto the sticker paper, instead of drawing it sloppily with a sharpie. Anyone have any suggestions as to how to do that?

I'll post a video in a day or two.

Here is how it was made: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=13760

Enjoy!

Very good, but why did you sit on them ?
Now they're completly twisted. All that work for nothing.

No, stop jocking, they are beautiful.
Any video ?

Nice ambigram logo! ("citan"?)

The twister 1 looks a bit like my twist cube, but distinctly different in the way you applied the twist.

That's it!

I guess signing my last reply was a little bit of a giveaway.

Both nice but I think I prefer #2. They have a surreal look.

Nice work!

They both look pretty tough to solve.

I prefer the one with the Windmill type pattern - it looks more swirly and Dali-esque than the other.

This kinda reminds me of a square antiprism. You should make one that's twisted 45 degrees, so that the top is like twister I and the bottom is like twister II.

That is very cool, and very innovative, I never would have thought of doing anything like that.

Thanks everyone!

Tony: I can't imagine getting it uniformly twisted by hand. That would be sooooooooooooo tedious and nerve wracking! Good luck!

Yes but so far I had only stuck plasticine to a cube as a 3d sketch a few times. Looking at this one again mine would be different though similar. It certainly wouldn't be easy by hand but certainly buildable. I was going to call it either Tony Fisher's Twisted or Tony Fisher's Twisty Puzzle assuming they hadn't been used before. I may still go ahead with it for 2010 DCD.

Sorry for the huge bump, but I wanted to let people know that I am now selling one of these on eBay. Please go to the marketplace forum for the link: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=15017

I am selling the Twister 2, but it is not the same one as in these pictures. It's kind of version 2.0: it's from the same molds, but cast with more experience under my belt.
