After hearing about it from Cali in her GeekBrief, I just had to get one myself: a NeoCube!
As stated by the company: the future of puzzles. It is supposed to stimulate both hemispheres of the brain, according to this page.
There are some sample videos available on Youtube.
The NeoCube is composed of 216 individual high-energy Neodymium Iron Boron rare earth magnets.
This allows you to create and recreate an outrageous number of shapes and patterns.
The NeoCube is literally a puzzle with billions of solutions.
It should arrive in the mail, 1-2 weeks from now. Hmm, one can’t help but wonder what kind of havoc strong magnets like that will wreak on the electronics of the various postal services which it will pass on the way to Norway… 😎892 views
