The Flexi-Cubus is a mechanical model, an octasphere puzzle in the form of a steampunk skeleton cube made out of eight joint-connected spheres. This flexible connection allows the spheres to move and roll over one another creating different geometrical shapes.
Each sphere is a mini-mechanism comprising six segments connected with a hinged joint. The geometrical model takes the shapes of a rectangle and a 3D cube transforming by bending the joints from one to the other and back as many times as you want.
The Flexi-Cubus is designed as a means to improve your attention and focus on a task you are working on. It will help you to relieve anxiety and stress, and direct your thoughts and feelings in a positive way.
For extended puzzle play, put together this model without referring to the instructions. If you get stuck or lose the instruction book, the online PDF is always there to guide you to the next step.
