These puzzles owe a _lot_ to the Japanese tradition of karakuri - samples here and here.

Wow. Had to stop watching the binary box, it was starting to hurt my brain and I was getting dizzy.

The video is really great.

And his advice near the end "You're going to be flawed in some manner or another, so you want to at least plan for it.". I think we should pass a national law, requiring Donald Rumsfeld to get that tattooed on his chest.

Fascinating. I wonder how much advanced planning each one takes? Are there detailed schematics sampled somewhere? Or is that the magician giving away his tricks?

Lee was my neighbor last year. He's a super nice guy, his puzzles are beautiful and to top it all off, he puts a box of random puzzle pieces on the curb for people to take and repurpose in any way they choose. I miss Jingletown....a gem in East Oakland!
