Magnet Puzzle

You'll have to excuse me for a moment. Today we're going to diverge from the usual nonsense and chicanery to show you a little project I've been working on for awhile. It's a magnetic puzzle.

Basically, it's a puzzle made with magnets. It's kind of self explanatory like that. So far, I have only been able to put it together one way. I've come close a couple of times with slight variation, but the last couple pieces just wont fit, so I'm pretty confident that there is only one way to do it. There are up to eight magnets on each piece and I've varied which way the poles are directed to created the unique pieces.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment, or you can email me direct at Enjoy the pics below!

Wait, did you make that? or did you buy, crack the magnetic puzzle code, then typed up a cheat sheet of that code to put in your wallet so your Rubik's Cube cheat sheet would have a friend?

I have no other comment. OTHER than, I am horrible at puzzles. Magnetic or otherwise.

So because its magnetic, you can just throw it together and it solves itself?
