Modern Times 21

Modern Times 21 A very difficult color-matching puzzle. The objective is to align the wheels so that each wheel has a common touching color.  The puzzle is made more difficult by the fact that some areas of each wheel have no cog teeth, affecting the way that each rotates relative to the others.   This puzzle is a more colorful style of the original wood version and is made with color anodized metal pieces with a decorative border. Made in ten laser-cut woods, acrylic, and stainless steel by Jean-Claude Constantin. Jean-Claude Constantin lives in Germany, where he designs and manufactures many different wood and metal puzzles, as well as magic tricks.

The simplicity of the puzzles is misleading. Although the concept is quite simple – finding the pieces and repairing them together – an amazing level of mental activity is required to complete the necessary steps to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are necessary to achieve what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to a general pattern. More importantly, solving puzzles is great work for the brain and can have therapeutic benefits.
