A tactile puzzle

The magnetease puzzle has been developed for Recent Toys during the Bachelor Final Project at the TU Delft. The challenge is to combine the pieces into a prescribed shape. The magnets located in each piece’s surface will determen if they fit. This is how the puzzle becomes a tactile brainteaser instead of a visual brainteaser.

The pieces

The puzzle only contains two different pieces. A pyramid and a tetrahedron. With these two pieces a wide variety of shapes can be constructed.


A handmade prototype has been made to preform user test and proof the concept to the company's representative.
