To reinvent the game Operation, artist Moritz Waldemeyer created this gadget that looks like a medieval torture device. If you're bored and have too much time on your hands, you'll probably try to beat this little lock-picking-exercise-turned-party-game. If not, then it will sit out on a living room side table and be the conversation piece we know it can be. More about this guy after the jump...

The object of this game directly follows Operation: You have to enter the key into a three-dimensional maze without touching the walls. Every touch is being counted and the person with the smallest number wins.

Although the walls are clear, you can't really see what you are actually doing, so the designer included a 3D file of the maze inside the game so you can study up on your laptop. That way, you can get really, really good at it and impress your friends. Did we say impress? We mean that it will make your friends realize they need to take you out more.
