A puzzle to counter the code driven cube , revenge on the cube Part-2 !

First of all , can i claim origin of concept true a #POB post ? .. or can i challenge others true it to prove me wrong ? Or at least have a conversation in comment's about any right's i can or can not claim on my at this time proposed concept for a puzzle , a 3D puzzle that is . Someone claimed the

concept of taping a banana to a white wall some time ago , so why wouldn't i have a try with my mind-fart .

downst.jpg

Yes , only 12 pieces , 12 five pointed stars with kind of hook like points , made from 3mm iron plate . Stainless steel is a option . The whole bunch can be hold in one hand if stacked . Just 12 fractals that could easily be mistaken for something completely different .

Yeah , mistaken for something else , .. could give a problem at airports and shit ,.. still working on ways around that . But besides that minor point it makes a amazing fun party puzzle or puzzle to use for anger management training . As i know from experience , where the four people family i was part of took weekly group sessions at a shrink , as where i solved all Chinese rope and wood-stick puzzles the shrink had on a shelve during my time sitting there . Should have stayed home and turned myself in to a pickle , but i did not poses that knowledge , so i solved the puzzles while in group therapy sessions .
But enough of that , let's solve this puzzle of stars . Rules ? ... no tools other then the body may be used , if you think a noose , a foot or a elbow is needed , no problem . I prefer to use just my hands .

3st2.jpg

In the above picture i have 4 pieces together , witch is 1/3 of the whole already . Where i took the time to take shoot it with my free right hand . Look at how i pinch those three points in to one ,with 4 stars it's still comfortable enough to ignore . This changes fast when the half of it , six stars , are in there place . For then one has to pinch five point's in to one like in the picture below .

6st.jpg

So the whole secret in solving this puzzle is having skill's . In my past i made some at the work i had , gave them all away . And i know most who have one , have it locked with rubber bands in it's 3D 12 pointed star form ,... after i put it together even . Some take it out on party's , have a laugh ,.. ending up throwing the fractals in to a wooden fence . One i know off stands rubber banded on a office cabinet . Witch all showed me ,.. this is a hard ass finger breaking puzzle to the most of the world .

6st2.jpg

Yeah i know , it doesn't look that match , half a puzzle done . And the muscles in the left hand are starting to burn . Where at this point switching hand to hold can give some release and is possible . Last two stars are the most tricky so this puzzle is not getting easier towards the end and not forgiving on mistakes . A thing that is in all very challenging to me as where i have seen many others ,.. don't even try .

handful.jpg

When done and solved , it's a handful . After the long pinch on one point you can grab it like putting your hands around it like a torus , squish and shake a bit to get perfect shape and gently put it on a small shot's glass . Take the star of , take the shot , put the star back on a other shot for the next person , the one breaking the star pay's all ,.. or solves the puzzle ,.. would that work ?

fullstand.jpg

I don't know if this is a booze puzzle , and thinking about it , nah , no , it's more a smokers puzzle to meditate on while solving it . And when done , a thing to stare at for hours from all angles .

The graviton , for that's it's ones given name , was original designed on drawing by M.C. Escher . A great graphical artist that ones lived . I do not claim his creation , i claim only a concept of use in the form of a puzzle . Can i ? may i ? ... I don't know , but making this post put's some reverence to me on the concept i thought of .

gravitation.jpg!PinterestSmall.jpg

above the work of Escher ,.. gravtitation , where now i can tell , the fractals in it all gravitate to the center of the whole structure , witch makes it very strong seemingly divvying gravity itself . There are many more secrets hidden in this structure , like the 12 sided cube , a symbol worth death penalty if found on one , way back in the dark ages . Whispers said ,.. this cube can role , why are we forced in six sided cubes unable to roll ?

Even do i said i would give way to all secrets in this post to @edystringz i will leave it with this . I think my post did what it was mend for ,.. sell my product , my concept of use . Anyone curious about the structure of stars secrets i recommend to watch some Wall Thornhill , Ben Davidson , Torah torus connections and other mind-blowing stuff . Let's say , i like to observe what other people may find . ;-)

See this all , to long to add to my last post , probably would miss it's point to .

Any comments and thoughts are welcome , even when they break my illusion .. ;-)

Have a nice day all , peace to all .

I did the calculations on the stainless steel one ones , pesky little stars , the form makes them have 35% waste material after cutting . I came with a profitable selling price of about 130 Euro's for a stainless steel one . Where a plane iron one would cost about 50 euro's . And that without packaging in some shiny box or transport cost's .

Somewhere way back on steemit there is a picture of a rvs one , on a for it designed stand from the same material . The one in the post is from the son of a good friend of mine , i gave it about 5 years ago , i will give it back when i copied the form of one star to a file on my laptop .

Would love to sell some , but i ain't no commercial talented trader , could do all deals on production . Like make the deals at a laser cutting company to get the parts shove some boxes but sales is not my thing . It's a classic problem where the inventor needs a partner in sales and so product protection .

So i am all open to suggestions , even thinking banana style where i print my permission to create one on a NFT picture ,.. costing some Hive or POB to obtain , like lets say somewhere between the 10 and 10.000 coins . Or what about exclusive for #Proofofbrain only , like some promo ornament , every star has room to have some logo engraved on it ,.. won't even cost match more for it's all one go for a laser .

Anyways it looks better as the hive logo cubes and would not mind seeing it back as a logo for #POB . After all it's a free to use form and anyone having a drawing program can make one , and order the parts at a laser cutting company .

I am willing to do the works and find out what it would exactly cost to make handle and transport one so to get today's prizes . So yes ,i could sell them up to a certain point , like in small quantities if someone really likes one .
But it won't be cheap . ;-)

Hmmm, maybe a 3d printed plastic one?

Maybe @dylanhobalart could suggest something?
Could you crank these out cheaper than the shipping from europe?

It has to be stiff , straight and unable to bend , a very good quality 3d printer could work i guess . I like the steel ones , makes the challenge feel more risky . The ultimate one would be a glass one to me . ;-)
I don't know @dylanhobalart , but he's welcome to take a look .
Didn't understand that last question ,.. not experienced in shipping goods i am , sorry .

Sorry, the question was for Dylan, he does metal work up in Canada.
I have one of his pieces he made for me before the fork from steem.

Glass, huh?
I guess a mold could be poured?
A ceramic one certainly wouldn't be too hard to make.

I'd think wood would be challenging to complete, too.

If we were a real social media we would have many artisans vying for the business, but our halls are pretty empty.
Maybe somebody will show up that can do these things for folks not in a position to do it for themselves.

Ill have a look myself to , see if i can invest in one , order it , get it and then sell that single one somehow ,.. take it from there and see what happens . Where i would have to sell at least 4 or 5 to get my investment back . Low risk slow start .

Wood for splinters and glass for cuts , comes with a medical emergency set and all .
Or should i think big and get screwed by Lego . ;-)

Sure wouldn't want to step on that thing in the middle of the night.

LOL , the first i made , i welded all points and spots i could hit , did our best to destruct it . Just before i was gonna use the hydro press on it a friend asked to have it . He made all points shiny sharp , attached a chain and stick to it and had some fun . He still has it , hanging an his man-cave wall , uses it to crack walnuts sometimes . ;-)

@antisocialist suggested I try to 3D print this. I'd like to 3D model this and print it with PLA plastic. If I do I'd like to post the .stl file on Thingiverse under a Creative Commons BY-SA license. In the notes I can attribute you and link to your blog posts. Is that fine with you?

get creative , where i guess it ain't that hard to get the design made in Solidworks or cad . I lost the PC with all my files and working out how to draw a new digital file that for instance a laser-cutter could use . There is a good wood laser cutting company not far from me , when i have some cash and the file i will order a 3mm multiplex one there .
Everyone is free to make there own , me claiming anything is a bit of a joke and like wanna get rich from ductape and banana's . But very mach appreciated when i get linked to come and see what others made of it ,.. and , if they can solve it .
Where if someone went full commercial production on the puzzle aspect i would not mind to get some minor profit from it . Where i don't no if the ghost of Escher can claim some profit to . ;-)
Have some fun i say , be creative , share it engage it .

The CC BY-SA license allows commercial use so I wouldn't be able to guarantee if someone sold it you would get anything. The way I view it is the BY-SA license allows anyone to sell it commercially so the amount of competition in the marketplace is maximized driving the price it could be sold competitively as low as possible. Maybe if your puzzle becomes a fad you could get some fame status as the creator and maybe some interview and book deals.

If the ghost of Escher shows up threatening legal action I think you should talk to a lawyer about a countersueance.👻

Ill choose fame over sitting in a bunker on a bunch of coin anytime .
Fame and fortune ,.. where only fame has change of getting immortal .
Fortune is secondary to fame , if ones lucky , fortune will follow fame .
Spreading fame won't bring fortune , spreading fortune brings fame .
Sharing is caring , do your thing .

ill won't forget to mention you when i have a smoke with Rogan .,.. ;-)

Thickness is exact 3mm , changing that would need change to the 3mm gab in the star to . Have some info on the measurements from me , and have fun .

You obtain a brilliant mind to have extracted this creation from the depths of Escher's work.
You indeed own the rights to this I think. This is not anywhere near a copy, this is original work you created by being brilliant.
I would love to print this in PLA.
I see that a potential .stl file might hit thingiverse soon :)

Thanks for the nice words , .. keep your progress posted ,.. have fun .

I tried a chocolate one ones ,... it melted in hand and broke on pressure from putting together .

PLA could work better i guess . .. ;-)
