This beautiful wooden puzzle is inspired by Sir Isaac Newton's law of gravity. Place the "bullet" inside the "cup" and place on a flat surface. Can you work out how to remove the bullet without moving the cup?
Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727): Famous for observing an apple fall from a tree from which he formulated the theory of gravity - the invisible force that draws everything towards the centre of the earth, and keep the earth and other planets orbiting around the sun. He experimented with prisms. splitting a beam of light and proving that white light is made up of a spectrum of all the colours.

A very unexpected solution for this puzzle, a gem of simplicity and complexity at the same time. Some other way to do it but far more elegant. I solved this one firstly using a tool before being said many months latter that there was another way to do it: No tools needed (but you can still try to find this other way of solving it as a second challenge with a tool we all have at home!) A great little puzzle very fun for parties!
