"This work memorizes 120 (The factorial of 5) kinds of turn to open the drawers. The big base is full of 30 device plates. The plates move vertically and horizontally, and change the arrangements when you open or close the drawers. The work memorizes the turn you closed the drawers just before automatically, and change the turn to open the drawers next. In theory, 6 kinds / 25 plates are needed to realize this system. But actually, instead of that, 3 kinds / 30 plates are used. It’s a full-scale work that matches his previous Super Cubi. The designer was eager to make it since he began to make Karakuri. It will be a most favorite work for the designer." -Karakuri Creation Group
