Description: The faces of the modular Sommer Cube (S3) feed into twisted conduits that comprise a three-dimensional, tunnelling maze. The website provides example arrangements and construction questions such as "Given that a ball must exit at the lowest S3 level and obey gravity, what is the minimum number of cubes necessary to make four quadruple path cubes, or S3s which utilize all four conduits as passageways?" Available with transparent or opaque walls.
