Norway PuzzleThis is a combo iPhone/iPad app and real-world puzzle. A traditional 1000 piece puzzle that comes to life with a free “AR Puzzle” app from the App Store.

For example the puzzle featuring Lofoten, Norway provides puzzlers with the ability to completely transform a sunny, picturesque Nordic day into a winter wonderland. Puzzlers complete the puzzle and then start the free app on their iPhone or iPad  2 or higher, to activate the snow that falls onto the village with repeated taps of the screen. The more the screen is touched, the more snow will fall.

All is presented with background information about various city sights and is set against a musical backdrop. In addition to the AR technology, the puzzle features precision-cut puzzle pieces made with Ravensburger’s Premium Puzzle Softclick Technology™.

Glass Rubik’s Cube

Rubik-s-Glass

While this isn’t a real product, yet, designer IceBone has created a rendering of  what many are calling the best Rubik’s Cube ever. He said it took approximately 20 hours to render, using 3DStudio Max 6.0 and Mental Ray 3.2.6. Lets hope that some toy engineer somewhere can figure out how to make one in the real world.
