About this project
We accidentally created this impossible puzzle. We have performed all of the science but to no avail. Kickstarter, you're our only hope.

Train your brain: Develop spatial reasoning skills-- hone critical thinking. Weeks, even years of challenging play.
Impress your friends: "Wow. Such puzzle. Very boob."
Mathematics: 2^2 possible permutations! That's 6.642156×10^-24 moles, 0.3333333 dozen, and e^(i Pi)+5 permutations!
Nutritional Benefits: Probably none.
Testimonials: "Amazing. Simply mind blowing" - someone taken out of context.
Construction: Precision engineered for unmatched handling and acceleration. The Boob Cube measures 2"x2"x2" and is made of black, injection-molded ABS plastic with vinyl stickers.
The stand is made of black acrylic and is manufactured via laser cutter. Assembled by Erfan Ahmadi and Dane Christianson-- two good looking mechanical engineering undergraduates at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, IL.
See, at first we thought "hey let's just 3D print all these Boob Cubes for the Kickstarter, then we wind up with 3D printers in the end. This is such a smart idea."
Then we realized that was a dumb idea. It's the 21st century. We can pay an injection molder to crank out Boob Cubes.
So we used math to figure out that we need exactly $58008 to injection mold one Kickstarter's worth of Boob Cubes in time for Christmas. Yeah that's totally a lot of dollars, but if you tell two friends and then they tell two friends-- that's like 8008 friends and that's more than enough.
The Boob Cube history:
The Boob Cube's past is shrouded in mystery. It was first made limitedly available around 1980 by a now vanished "Jim Bouton Corporation". Our scientists discovered this so-called "Jim" abandonded pursuing the "Boob Cube" trademark in 1982. He obviously couldn't live with creating this monster and jumped off a bridge. RIP "Jim".
We're bringing back the Boob Cube in another limited edition run thing and with Kickstarter. We're not sure if we're going to ever make these again. #scarcity
To whomever has a bigass laser cutter we can use to cut and etch a huge acrylic sheet.
To Steph, the videographer for the campaign video.
To Bret Christianson, Dane's big brother, who created the music for the campaign video.
To Colton Christianson, Dane's little brother, the graphic design consultant.
To Lydia Christianson, Dane's older sister, because she corrected "whoever" to "whomever" and was feeling left out.
And to Katrina Gossman and her mom, who inspired the development of this puzzle.
Risks and challenges
Our injection molder is extremely speedy. There will be no delay in getting the parts made.
The challenge will be assembling all the Boob Cubes, making the acrylic stands, and shipping in time for Christmas. We have few weeks after campaign funding to work with.
It's a lot of work for undergrads at IIT, so the risk is not shipping out some percent Boob Cubes in time for Christmas. To ovecome these challenges we will hire our friends to help us assemble, pack, and ship.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
