These Magic Gears Will Mesmerize You

Who knew that watching gears move could be so soothing? These “Magic Gears” created by puzzle designer Oskar van Deventer will hypnotize and mesmerize you.

Magic Gears Grid is a plaything made of a number of unusual looking gears. What is so magical about it? Well, gears aren’t supposed to work in a triangular configuration. Here’s an explanation from its maker:

Adjacent gears are supposed to turn in an opposite direction, and gears should be gridlocked when meshed in a triangular grid. However, it works for magic gears. Magic Gear Grid has a total of 19 magic gears in a triangular grid, one of which has a crank. When the crank is turned, then magic gears with the green side up turn clockwise, those with the red side up turn counter-clockwise (anti-clockwise). Surprising, isn’t it?

That’s pretty cool. Watching these gears move is so relaxing. I don’t know about you, but I could watch this all day. If you’re dying to have one for yourself, you can order one from Oskar’s i.materialize shop, but it will set you back a whopping $305(USD).
