desire to boast any abilities lives in each of us.Someone can jump forward a good distance, someone pleasure to surprise others, taking out his tongue to his nose.
In the early 80-ies caused special delight demonstrate intellectual ability and dexterity together.Then, in the USSR there were new puzzles including Rubik's Cube and the snake of the links which can gather a lot of two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes.
Who invented the puzzle
Hungarian inventor Erno Rubik famous throughout the world thanks to the Rubik's Cube - the intellectual game that requires concentration, a calm frame of mind, a system of strategic thinking and passion for sport.Author puzzle patented in 1975, and in the 80s she made him a millionaire.
Another, no less famous, but not such a complex puzzle that conquered the children and adults from all walks of life - Rubik's Snake.Bowl - the most popular, perhaps due to its compactness, gathered from her figure.
What is snake
prism 24, which are identical in size and interconnected hinges - seemingly uncomplicated device.Its original form for the assembly of figures actually resembles an elongated snake.Typically, two-tone snake - so it is easier to collect.
of the instructions to the puzzle, you'll learn how to make a ball of snakes, dogs, cats and many other intricate geometric shapes.
Step by Step assembly ball of snakes
puzzle at first seems unusually difficult.How to build a ball of snakes, is unclear.However, after spending a few minutes, you are sure to "Tame the snake" and convert it into a flat, beautiful figure.
So, how to make a ball of snakes:
- can begin to collect the ball, turning the snake as the links to the left and the right.Place the snake in front of a vertically so that the edge is stretched over the top, and the uppermost prism - base to the ceiling.Suppose you are right-handed.Take the lens of the left hand and right hand, turn the top joint of 90 degrees to the right.
- Turn the second prism in the same direction as 90 degrees.
- third joint snake similarly rotate, continuing to add segments to one side of the prism.
- Once you scroll a snake for the fourth time, as if wrapping it right all the time, you should have a very distinct part of the future of the ball - the deepening of the three faces of the same color, and each of them adjoin the edge in a contrasting color.
- Then, holding the snake has for itself, turn it over to the right.
- Repeat steps 1-4, so that you get another recess - the second part of the globe.And the last two steps you need to perform almost simultaneously, to prism snake tightly pressed together.
- key and repeat the action - turn away from the ball itself snake, frees her to make one - third of the ball.Again, repeat steps 1-4, and turn down the snake from the bowl.In total you get in the end recesses 8.
- In the end we have gathered almost a figure with protruding tail.How to make a ball of snakes, so it was smooth, the correct form, symmetrical?Locate the "tail" from which you started to collect it and move it away from the ball.
- a second end consisting of two prisms, turn right, and most of its apex - from himself.
- Now, everything is simple - lower both ends of the direction of the ball.Balloon snake ready.
The invention is useful
Rubik's Snake develops excellent spatial and creative thinking and imagination.After all, in order to raise the figure, it is necessary to keep a picture in my head and understand what to strive for in the end.Creative people are sure to come up with something new in the process of unfolding joints snake at its discretion.
also is a kind of gymnastics for the joints of the hands.Rarely who regularly performs gymnastics, helps prevent arthritis and arthrosis in older age, and with such a toy, like a snake, it happens by itself.
Once the practice is clear, how to collect the snake from the ball, do another piece, think about it and tell the story of her child.And be sure to help him to discern and to make you into angular, for example, Behemoth, his living prototype.
Then ask your child to collect something simple for yourself.Let the snake enough out of it, at the same time developing fine motor skills.
What kind of snake is better to choose
Rubik's Snake can be large and small, different colors.If you take a snake in hand, it becomes clear just how easy it engage - check that she turned effortlessly.In good, the package should be enclosed instruction, though you yourself can easily find different ways of collecting puzzles several levels of difficulty.Learn hands-on video: how to make a ball snake, swan, turtle, dinosaur or flowers.
small snake is easy to carry - even snakes are in the form of key rings.But the owner of the larger toys certainly feel like a real designer.The most important thing when choosing a snake - a strong desire to twirl it in their hands and do something with the help of their own.
