This amazing diy octasphere puzzle is made out of eight joint-connected spheres. The flexible connections allow you to change its shape, from its steampunk skeleton cube to what your imagination can invent with the spheres moving and rolling over one another to create different geometrical shapes such as a rectangle and a 3D cube.
The Flexi-Cubus is designed as a means to improve attention and focus on task. Used as a stress toy, it can also help relieve anxiety by direct thoughts and feelings in a constructive way.

Additional helpful materials: for the best assembly results and to ensure the correct fit we recommend checking each detail for flaws and removing imperfections using the finest grit sandpaper. If connecting of certain parts appears difficult, try using household candle wax to lubricate the parts. If you experience difficulties removing a part off the board, simply use a cardboard box opener to detach it. If you desire, you can paint your model; watercolor, gouache or mordant are recommended. Take note that a thick layer can interfere with gears working.
