Gear Wheel IQ from Brando
by Mark R
I have seen a lot of Rubik’s Cubes and their imitators, and this Gear Wheel IQ certainly seems quite unique in a world of puzzle games.
What makes this puzzle unique is its construction. Some of you might remember back in the early eighties, when Rubik’s Cube was at its ultimate prime, an you might have been like me and cheated on a Rubik’s Cube by taking it apart.
I don’t think you can take this one apart, and if you did, it would probably be just as puzzling. You see, this Gear Wheel IQ is so named because spinning one side of this particular puzzle box causes another side to turn.
I figure that you would have to be some sort of genius to solve this one. I don’t think that I ever learned how to beat the Rubik’s Cube. It looks like it would be something that would be hard to put into words, and this Gear IQ looks like it requires some sort of complex mathematical formula of some type.
Apparently, there is some sort of turning wheel sound that this makes. It probably sounds a lot like some sort of kid’s toy with a turning dial. You should be able to get the Gear Wheel IQ from our friends at Brando for about $11.90.
