Exhibit builder John Ito has done it again, this time with a truly diabolical creation which, with its sheer addictiveness, will put any video game you’ve ever played to shame.
The challenge is to get four steel balls through the maze and into a spiraling cup, where they ring a bell to let you know you’re a genius. Looks easy? Don’t be too sure. You can’t see it in the picture, but the center of the maze counter-rotates against the perimeter part, mining an enticing adventure with with perils and pitfalls. Once you try Diaballique, you’ll never go back to lackluster video games again.
