MoFangGe Timur Gear Halpern-Meier Tetrahedron – Ice Clear Body After his Gear Pyraminx, designer Timur Evbatryov came up with another design of a tetrahedron with gears. In this case the cuts were placed in a different depth which made the small triangle in the center of each face visible. This also changed the number of teeth for the edge and corner pieces. To fully restore the original position, you have to repeat one move 24 times, that is, the corner has to be turned around 28 times.This puzzle allows a special move were two opposing edges are moved the same time.

Trying to see how pieces fit and re-assessing where they might go when they don’t fit is a good exercise in checking and re-evaluating choices. Each piece can only go in to one place so there is none of the compromising and trading-off that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to constantly re-evaluate their decisions, and teaches patience with the process as it is an integral part of the game.
