Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Some of you may know that I design puzzles other than twisty puzzles. Actually, most of my designs are non-twisty, as I have started designing twisty puzzles only recently.

Rising Sun is a mechanical-maze design of mine. The object is to get the sun out of the cloud. I achieved the gray look by dipping the cloud in hot black dye for only a few seconds. I used a cardboard+acrylic version of this puzzle as my IPP 2004 exchange gift in Tokyo, Japan, the land of the rising sun. The new nylon version is much more rugged.

Watch the YouTube video.
By the puzzle from my Shapeways Shop.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

P.S.1 As this is not a new twisty puzzle, I decided to post in General Puzzle Topics. I hope I do not offend anyone by posting about a non-twisty puzzle.
P.S.2 There is a forum about general mechanical puzzles: Renegade Puzzlers. However, it requires you to be logged in to watch the forum.

Oscar, you'll only offend someone if you stop creating masterpieces. Until then, we don't care if you invent a 'non-puzzle' (I'm sure it'd be out of this world :lol: :lol: ).

Great puzzle, by the way. Very original and creative, as always :D

This is an example of how you don't need a twisty puzzle to be sucessful here!

Fantastic design! :o
