In 2009, Lu Chen (“The Magician of The Year” 2011 - The Academy of Magician Arts) performed an incredible tile puzzle effect on local Chinese television, which caused quite a stir at the time. No matter how many pieces were seemingly added to a square tile puzzle, its shape and surface area remained the same.
The effect is as simple as described but the impact it had on the audience’s mind on a cognitive level was indescribable. Even today, more than 10 years later, many variations of this classic tile puzzle can be found on the market.
If you are familiar with the effect, you will notice that, although there are many versions, varying from magnetic, non-magnetic, wood, plastic, acrylic, stage versions… many have tried to make it unique, but the basic essence remained the same.
“The effect is flat, why don't we make it three-dimensional?”
With that idea in mind, we present to you The Amazing Puzzle 3D!
The Evolution from 2D to 3D
A translucent box is shown to contain several wooden blocks. The blocks completely occupy the space in the box. You then remove the blocks and perform the perpetual tile puzzle routine. After adding the two extra pieces, the building blocks seems to have retained its original shape.
At this time, you take the translucent box and show that it could still fit the entire block puzzle. Not only did the shape remained the same, but the surface area also did not change!
The entire block puzzle is then placed back into the box and covered with the lid. The shape, surface area, and volume are still exactly the same as before.
From two-dimensional to three-dimensional, this not only strengthens the effect of the classic tile puzzle but also portrays a completely different experience to the audience. It is a real evolution of the tile puzzle effect.
Every aspect is designed for a professional experience.
The Wood Blocks
Considering its aesthetics, feel, durability, etc., We have chosen the blocks to be made out of Brazilian rosewood. The wood possesses a red luster, has a fine and uniform structure, high strength, and density. It is not easily deformed and feels good. Perfectly suited to make the 3D puzzle blocks. Its polished surface and chamfered edges make it feel good to the touch.
Frosted acrylic case
You may have encountered a situation where the puzzle tiles were accidentally scattered on the ground. Therefore, so we have included an acrylic case, which not only is a part of the performance but also doubles as a storage box. The box is made of high-grade acrylic, and the wooden blocks inside can be observed from the outside. The frosted surface also gives it a matte finish and solves the problem of fingerprints.
Unprecedented portable size
Most tile puzzles are big and bulky to carry around. The large size also restricts its use to more formal performances, such as in small theaters or trade shows. The overall size of the Amazing 3D Puzzle Blocks is 8cm x 6.6cm x 4cm, which is very small.
The acrylic case makes it more convenient and practical as an everyday carry item.
Full instructions is Included.
This is a terrific little device. The puzzle is well-constructed and of high quality. The video explanation is easy to follow and understand. It involves only one minor sleight and leaning to solve the puzzle (as well as necessary variants) is easy. What makes this effect interesting is that the audience is uncertain what the effect is going to be. Is it a spatial memory game to solve the puzzle? Is it the surprise of adding 2 additional puzzle pieces and yet the puzzle retains its rectangular shape? Or is it the fact 2 additional pieces are added and the puzzle still fits perfectly within the carrier box? Well, it's all 3, and the final insertion of the puzzle into the clear carrier box after adding 2 extra pieces is mysterious. It appears to violate a law of conservation of volume.
J’aurais besoin que vous me fassiez parvenir le mode d’emplois, car je ne peux pas l’utiliser sans.
Merci de votre compréhension.
This is an excellent puzzle in the highest quality. Such a great trick. Will take some practice but so worth it. Get this!!
Beautiful craftmanship, both the box and the puzzle. Draws immediate attention from everyone. The routine has to be learned by heart to make the effect great. But once mastered a very good trick to do! And, the service of TCC was also very good. Due to a manifacturing fault I contacted them and received without any question, another puzzle. Great!
A quality prop which with the proper handling will be an impressive effect. Well packaged and presented.
A very clever puzzle which will be baffling to most once you have mastered the basic move required. As always, the TCC packaging and props are great quality.
If you like this type of Freer, Tangram Paradox, Endless Chocolate type puzzles, this is a nice compact version that you can add to your collection.
Nicely made and packaged item!
I love the case for it too!
