Superplexus – ultimate 3D puzzle promises to drive you and your credit card crazy

Superplexus

The Superplexus is a seriously insane boy’s toy featuring a 36 inch diameter sphere holding a 300 foot long labyrinthine track around which you must guide a wooden marble. Sounds like fun, right? Yep, that’s what we thought too until we came across a small price sticker on the bottom of the 6–ply Finnish birch tree frame. $30,000. Hmm…where did we put that Rubik cube?

  The entire track laid out on a straight line is 31′ longer than a football field. In addition to the track, the ball must travel on a 1/16″ diameter stainless steel wire pathway at eight points along the journey. A series of directional arrows indicate the course to follow, and successful completion requires a minimum of 425 turns (plane changes) of the sphere–without letting the marble fall off the track.

Nigel is the managing editor of the Red Ferret, as well as a freelance columnist for the Sunday Times newspaper in London. Loves tech and fancies himself as a bit of a futurist, but then don’t we all?
