135-Piece Cube Transforms into Functioning Gun [Video]

I’ll be the first to admit that guns make me nervous. I am not a fan. But this cubic sculpture dismantles into 135 pieces, which in another configuration create a working .45 caliber muzzle-loading pistol—that’s pretty awesome. To be clear, not every part of the puzzle is a component of the finished gun assembly. However, contained within the cube are custom tools to assemble the piece, bullets, standard and laser sights, black powder pellets and a storage compartment.

Dubbed the Intimidator, the cube-turned-weapon was created by artist GarE Maxton, a process that took over a year to complete. The puzzle cube (which throws a bit of an AllSpark vibe) comprises six different metals and opens with a magnetic key, which then allows the parts to be separated and reassembled. The video below shows the process.

And, in finished form:

  1. This is just stupid. There is zero practical reason to put a gun in a puzzle.
    It's just an excuse to give people more weapons. It runs what would otherwise be an amazing puzzle.

  2. If you really want to upset him, simply hide the smallest part in the puzzle you can find and wait to see his re-action when he resembles it :)

    • hate to be the grammar nazi, but……reassembles it.

      although it would be funny if he actually resembled it ;)

  3. I agree, this gun has the cool parts and a "suck" part. The cool part is having a gun that could be formed into a cube. The "suck" part is having a gun that could be formed into a cube. That's all.

  4. Why would a gun make you nervous?

    Hoplophobia is the irrational fear of inanimate objects – I think you are a sufferer.
