David's Gear Cube - Black body

David’s Gear Cube – Black body David’s Gear Cube is a geared twisty puzzle inspired by the Gear Cube. It was conceived by David Tzur (previously known as Alex Polonsky) and developed by Oskar van Deventer, one of the world’s most prolific puzzle designers. This puzzles combines a corner-and-center-turning gear cube with a twisty 2x2x2 cube. Whereas it is easy to return the puzzle to its cubic shape, it is quite a challenge to get all gear segments to their right face, and even harder to solve the puzzle as a whole.

The simplicity of jigsaw puzzles is deceptive. While the concept is very straightforward – find the pieces and fix them together – there is a surprising level of mental activity required to carry out the steps needed to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are required to undertake what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to an overall pattern. More importantly, solving jigsaw puzzles is a great work out for the brain and can actually have therapeutic benefits.
