    • FLEB

      That's amazing! I didn't realize that's what the hedgehog puzzle was from! That's great!

    • Dana Ondráčková
      Dana Ondráčková Год назад

      Do not worry, you pronounced osm kinda fine, I understood you:-) it sounds kinda like word "possum" but without the p and not that open O :-)
      My parents (60+ yo) grew up on "Rychlé šípy" (fast arrows) who were imaginary 5 boys like "good boys" or "scouts" living in the Prague and they came across a bad group in the dark parts of the old prague who held the puzzle called "The hedgehog" (I talked about it under your previous videos) and whoever was skillfull enough to took the hedgehog out of its cage could keep the secret blueprint for a flying bycicle that was hidden inside.
      The stories were written like a comix and there were more puzzles like "nosy" (noses-a tiny papers with clues) that were thrown above the Prague and kids were collecting and trading them and trying to solve the full note where the hidden treasure was.
      So for our older generation they grew up on mysteries, puzzles and hidden secrets around our amazin old city.

      Thanks! I tried to follow a Czech pronunciation guide I found online, but I think my pronunciation of "osm" was still off. :/

    Something interesting to note is the fact that there are multiple species of wood going on, different grain patterns and direction, the mere fact that this sphere stays together and works without worrying about expansion is a testament to the wood worker who built it. It's pretty amazing actually. (provided it actually is real wood)

    You kinda breezed through it (like a champ :P), but I think the dexterity challenge at the end was super interesting.
    The puzzle and video plod along coasting on move-order and critical path, until bam! - simultaneity, compartmentalization etc! Even the pacing of the video changed. I know they're simple enough conceptually that most people internalize shift, but I love seeing the algorithmic paradigm and puzzle difficulty shift so fluidly. Especially with literally no mechanical change in the puzzle itself. Beautiful elegant puzzle.
    Keep 'em coming Fleeb!
