The essence of Goh Pit Khiam's design is the ternary sequence the four light rectangular pieces must go through before the square pivot piece is freed. The 2-piece cage was designed by Jack Krijnen.
The original design is extendible; adding rectangular pieces raises the level exponentially. With 6 pieces the level increases to 355!
