Superplexus is the intimidating big brother of Labyrinth

While I grew up playing a lot of video games, we had plenty of other toys that weren’t powered by electricity. One of my favorites was my Labyrinth game. If you’re not familiar with it, it was a wooden box that could be rotated on two different axises. On the surface was a maze which you would navigate with a marble. The trick was that you had to use the handles to rotate the box in order to move the ball. Oh, and did I mention that there were holes for the ball to get trapped in? Yeah, it was a rather difficult game to play. Well if you mastered your game as a kid, here’s one that will absolutely blow your mind.

The Superplexus is essentially the same thing as the old Labyrinth game, with the difficulty multiplied by a factor of ten or so. This game is housed inside a 36 diameter sphere, with enough track to run the length of a football field (and then some!) if you laid it all out end-to-end. If you were to complete this game in the most efficient manner, it would still take no less than 425 turns to accomplish the feat. Of course, the first (and arguably more difficult) task is to shell out the $30,000 it takes to purchase this novelty.
