Mind-Bending “Infinity Puzzle” Has No Beginning and No End

Nervous System Infinity Puzzle Infinity Jigsaw Puzzle

If you're someone who's always up for a challenge, chances are you've given jigsaw puzzles a go. While attempting to solve a standard puzzle is a great way to push your limits, it hardly breaks any boundaries—and that's where Nervous System comes in. Operating “at the intersection of science, art, and technology,” the design studio has crafted a mind-bending Infinity Puzzle that will have you seeing stars.

Inspired by the boundless concept of infinity, this puzzle has “no fixed shape, no starting point, and no edges.” That means that, though the finished product will always feature an image of the Milky Way, the puzzle's organically-shaped and space-themed pieces can be put together in thousands of different ways.

If this sounds impossible, brace yourself—it gets even more complicated. “Topologically, the Infinite Galaxy Puzzle maps to a Klein bottle, an impossible 3D shape where the inside and outside are mathematically indistinguishable,” Nervous System notes. “What this means is that it tiles with a flip. Pieces from the right side attach to the left side but only after flipping over. Just like the Klein bottle’s surface has no inside or outside, the puzzle has no up or down side.”

Do you think you can navigate this topsy-turvy task? If so, you can find the Infinity Jigsaw Puzzle in the My Modern Met Store.

If you're up for a challenge that's out of this world, you'll want to give the Infinity Puzzle by Nervous System a try.
