Puzzles by Maker > Bolaris - 3D sliding puzzle


Bolarishannu.jpgBolaris (TM) , the easy-to-manipulate sliding puzzle in real 3D, was invented by the Finnish Industrial Designer, Hannu Hjerppe and made in Finland.  Actually it's a 2D-sliding puzzle wrapped around a ball; the playing method is very much alike. Just the one little exception: it happens in 3D!

The tiles are slid around very easily with one finger, one part at a time.  The mechanism is easy enough for a young child to operate, and the "solid" color versions are simple enough to solve. Yet colour design can be very educational and give the opportunity to explore the 3D movements. A small but significant step from flat 2D-sliding puzzles to the third dimension. The one-part-at-a-time sliding system, a mechanism being patented by Hannu Hjerppe, allows the player to see the individual parts and the surrounding ones to figure out which one needs to be moved, to which direction, and how to get it done.

This brand new puzzle invented and made in Finland has made the small but significant step from flat 2D-sliding puzzles to the third dimension. The one-part-at-a-time sliding system allows the player to see the individual parts and the surrounding ones to figure out which one needs to be moved, to which direction, and how to get it done.
