This 1000 Piece Color-changing Jigsaw Puzzle Will Drive You Crazy

This unique jigsaw puzzle is not for those who get frustrated with ordinary puzzles. Designed by artist Clemens Habicht, the 1000-piece Changing Colors jigsaw puzzle is printed with a lenticular lens to create an eye-catching iridescent sheen.

So not only does the puzzle have lots of areas of similar colors, they constantly vary depending on the viewing angle and lighting conditions. As evil as the concept sounds, it may not be as difficult as it seems.

According to one Redditor who finished the puzzle, “In case anyone is curious, it was definitely challenging but two things made it doable: first, the holo effect is made using lenticular imaging, which uses parallel tiny tubular lenses for lack of a better word so that you see the different colors at different angles, and that gives the entire surface a consistent grain which I could use to orient the pieces. Secondly, every piece was two colors, and along a gradient, so I could sort by the color pairs and find all the green/magenta pieces and separate them from the green/red or blue/yellow, etc. I do not recommend gifting this to anyone who is colorblind unless they’ve wronged you in some extreme manner.”
