This Cute, 3D-Printed Puzzle Bear Is The New Rubik's Cube

If you think Rubik's Cubes are tough, try a simpler, cuter version of it with this new puzzle. The Ozo 1x2x3 Puzzle Bear is 3D printed puzzle that is great for adults and kids alike.

Industrial designer Emmanuel Carrillo designed the Ozo Puzzle Bear while at the University of Cincinnati and has released the model on the 3D printing model site, Cults.

Users can print the components but there are two different versions depending on the type of 3D printer and filament they are using. Also, the smooth movability of the bear's pieces may be tricky to ensure, and interested users need to check that all parts are smooth before assembling their own Ozo Puzzle Bear.

Carillo is looking towards mass production, and has 3D printed silicone molds of the bear so that multiple copies can be created in varying colors and sizes. Head over to this website to view the model.
