Tubie designs - click to see larger images. This is where we are storing all the designs that have been created for Tubies (or PatternCatches, as the hand-made units were called). Options would be selected here and linked through to the Orders page.

Now that the Sudoku Tubie is in the shops, we are no longer making them by hand and this page is of mainly nostalgic interest. But it may stimulate ideas for other designs that can be manufactured in volume. In particular we are keen to attract corporate customers and brand owners. If you think your company logo or your branded images would look good on a Tubie - and what wouldn't? - then please contact us!

Cream Tea pic A Cream Tea is obviously unimprovable, so there are no variants on this design.

Although, depending on the time of day, you may prefer the Full English.

Bamboopic Bamboo is just pretty. Images are from Sketchup, the best discovery of this project.

GCCpic The GCC design works by displaying one message (in red) in the start position, and then by a short series of moves revealing a second message in green. (See here)

You can either have the Global Credit Crunch, or your own wording, but note that it works best with five or six letter words! And we'll handle the positioning of the letters, you just give us the two messages.

Dancepic Could your Bowling league use a new design of trophy?

This one is a bit specialised. The blue and green lines can be matched up as normal but you will need to understand how to score at Tenpin Bowling to unscramble the two red lines.

Note that the Bowling design on the Play page has all ten frames, but the real world version only has frames 5 to 10, to give you a chance!
