Puzzles are always fun when you have down time or you need to keep your kids preoccupied while you make dinner; but it can get expensive buying new ones after you get bored with the old ones. How about getting your moneys worth with the Infinite Image Portrait Puzzle. This custom puzzle reuses the same 300 light or dark sepia toned pieces to re-create any JPEG image you have. All you need to do is install the software on a computer, upload your favorite picture, and then the software will generate a map based on the symbols found on the back of the pieces telling you how to create that JPEG with the puzzle pieces.
Infinite Image Portrait Puzzle
This is the custom jigsaw puzzle kit that reuses the same 300 pieces to re-create any portrait. The puzzle pieces all bear shades and gradients of light or dark sepia tones, and on their own look inauspicious. But when assembled in the custom-designed order and viewed from several feet away, they closely resemble the original image. To begin a custom puzzle, install the included software and upload a favorite JPEG image. The software then generates a map of unique symbols and colors, which act as building instructions. Puzzle builders simply match symbols on the map with those printed on the back of each piece, assembling the 10″ x 13 1/4″ puzzle on the included cardboard grid. The software can print a thumbnail image of the final portrait to help construction, or the thumbnail can be hidden when giving a custom puzzle design as a surprise gift. For Windows 7, Vista, XP, and Mac. Ages 8 and up. 8″ H x 16″ W x 2″ D
