The World of InFUNity Tiles
InFUNity Tiles turn an amazing math discovery into a fascinating puzzle for all ages!
In March 2023, a breakthrough discovery in mathematics was announced: the aperiodic monotile or "einstein" dubbed the Hat. This single shape can cover an entire plane to infinity without any repeating pattern. The elusive design was sought for fifty years … many doubted it could even exist!
Now InFUNity Tiles lets you hold this improbable polygon in your very own hands. The pieces connect endlessly — it's infinitely expandable — but they can also misconnect in "wrong" ways that lead to gaps or spaces that can't be filled. A math degree isn't needed to enjoy playing with these amazing "smart tiles," discovering the genius of their unique shape. Solo or with friends of any age, finding the right fit is fun and engaging!
Using Precious Plastics machinery, we've made our own Hat tiles from recycled plastic in our Replay Workshop prototyping lab. We can't get enough of them. (Literally! They can connect infinitely!) Working with our production partners at UpDog Products, a specialty injection molder in Somerset, Wisconsin, lets us offer them to customers all over the world just seven months after the shape's discovery!
Our basic package includes 21 hats in primary colors: red, yellow, and blue. They're generously sized tiles at about 125x90mm and 6.35mm thick (5" x 3.5" x 1/4"). Plus you'll get one special "Hattie the Turtle" tile! The Turtle is another einstein shape that opens huge possibilities for puzzle building. It's optional, but fits perfectly with the Hat to make even more and varied connections.
