This optical brainteaser presents a unique and fun challenge that can be used to teach the basic dimensions of color: hue, value and saturation. The 64 colors on the cube are combinations of cyan, magenta and yellow. Each cube is made up of 0%, 33%, 67% or 100% of the three colors. As you arrange the 64 smaller cubes to build the large cube, your challenge is to find the one truly harmonious solution to this puzzle. This is a high-end, precision manufactured model - featuring machine-milled parts (specific to .001"), the clean finish of high-impact color-injected polystyrene plastic cubes and glass-reinforced nylon rods. Once complete, the Colorcube is a 9" multi-function toy. Contains 128 colored plastic pieces, 48 rods, instructions, color poster and color guide. For ages 10 to 110! This is a great combination of art and science! Made in Canada.
Here are some of its many applications:
3D Puzzle - Fun to put together and quite a challenge because not many people know that color exists in three dimensions. Can you figure out the CORRECT "order of color"?
Construction Toy - Sort the 176 pieces, put them in order and then carefully construct the matrix of color that will dazzle your eyes and spark your imagination. This isn't the typical jigsaw; there's WAY more motor skill, finger dexterity and intellect involved!
Design/Decor Piece - Looks great anywhere, goes with every background. A simple, colorful model; a hanging mobile; a conversation piece to UNITE the artist and scientist in each of us.
Teaching Tool - The 21st Century's "color wheel". Used in EDUCATION for learning the advanced principles of color that govern the human eye, television, computers, digital printing and much more.
