Galaxy-Themed Jigsaw Puzzle with No Beginning or End Can Be Arranged in Infinite Ways #ArtTuesday

When assembling a jigsaw puzzle, there’s one tried-and-true method for successfully completing it—start with the edge pieces. Ignoring this conventional approach is design studio Nervous System, who have created an organic puzzle that has no beginning nor end. Called the Infinite Galaxy Puzzle, it’s just that—a type of jigsaw that can be constructed in a myriad of ways.

The 133 laser-cut plywood pieces boast a stunning depiction of the universe’s Galactic Center taken by the Hubble telescope. This splendorous image adorns both faces of each puzzle piece, meaning there’s no wrong or right side to the Galaxy Puzzle. By flipping a jigsaw over, it can be used as part of a totally different arrangement.

The confounding activity is based on a scientific curiosity known as the Klein bottle, in which an impossible 3D shape has mathematically identical insides and outsides. While this might be maddening to some puzzle builders, this unusual flexibility offers an ingenious means to exploring the galaxy from the comfort of home.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
