Title (EN) THREE-DIMENSIONAL PUZZLE DEVICE COMPRISING A CENTRAL BODY, ROTATION-ELEMENTS AND PUZZLE-ELEMENTS
(FR) PUZZLE EN TROIS DIMENSIONS COMPRENANT UN CORPS CENTRAL, ELEMENTS ROTATIFS ET ELEMENTS DE PUZZLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Puzzle device comprising a spatial central body with centre-symmetrical geometry, whereby the outer surface of said central body consists of eight equilateral hexagons and six squares, whereby the length of the sides of the squares equals the length of the sides of the equilateral hexagons, characterised by the fact that to some of said planes, puzzle-elements are attached in such a manner that a puzzle-element can be rotated round an imaginary axis which is perpendicular to the symmetry-centre of the plane of the central body to which the concerning puzzle-element is attached. The invention is further characterized by the fact that parts of said central body constitute rotation-elements, and that, through rotation of these rotation-elements, parts, can be exchanged between two or more puzzle-elements. The puzzle can be solved by combining rotations of the puzzle-elements and the rotation-elements in such a manner that, through mutual exchange of parts between puzzle-elements, a pre-defined initial situation can be restored. Said puzzle-elements can have such a shape and/or such appearance, that the puzzle device can serve as, for example, promotional item, advertising item, business gift, means of education etc.
(FR)L'invention se rapporte à un puzzle comprenant un corps central spatial à géométrie symétrique centrale, la surface externe dudit corps central consistant en huit hexagones équilatéraux et en six carrés, et la longueur des côtés des carrés étant égale à la longueur des hexagones équilatéraux. Ce corps spatial se caractérise par le fait que des éléments de puzzle sont attachés auxdits plans de manière qu'un élément de puzzle puisse pivoter autour d'un axe imaginaire qui est perpendiculaire au centre symétrique des plans du corps central auquel lesdits éléments de puzzle sont attachés. Cette invention se caractérise aussi par le fait que les parties dudit corps central constituent des éléments rotatifs de telle manière que, grâce à un échange mutuel des parties contre des éléments de puzzle, une situation initiale prédéfinie peut être rétablie. Lesdits éléments de puzzle peuvent adopter une telle forme et/ou apparence que le puzzle peut servir, par exemple, d'article de promotion, d'article publicitaire, de cadeau d'entreprise, d'outil éducatif etc.
