A Torbus & Ring Puzzle


New puzzles are being invented all the time. This one also poses new problems of classification.

The inventor calls it an Interlocking puzzle but it seems to be more of a Tanglement puzzle in the solving.



Made of Rosewood laminates and a steel ring, the object is to separate the parts.


This is the "simple" Torbus designed to show the relationship between a toroid and an enclosed ring (similar to a Möbius Strip), by rotating the latter 720 degrees
The inventor, Ray Fischer, has patented these puzzles and he submitted them to the 2006 design Competition in Boston MA.
