LightBox Puzzle

By: on October 04, 2017

The LightBox, in a new twist on physical brainteasers and cliched expressions, is designed such that seeing the light means you have not solved the puzzle.

The transparent box consists of multiple layers of acrylic that snap together magnetically to form 3D circuits. The circuits power LED lights that form a glowing sculpture in the box's center. Maneuver the LightBox layers properly and you'll start disconnecting the circuits, and turning off the lights. When the cube goes dark, you win! ...

A visit from the bogeyman!

Created by Eric Clough, the LightBox is made of acrylic platelets, photo-etched silver circuitry, and LED lights. The 2.75" cube is USB-rechargeable for repeated solving attempts.
