Jigsaw games are often enjoyed for the game itself and possibly even the image that is created in the end, but it is not too often that they are put together with another purpose in mind as the Denki Puzzle is. The Denki Puzzle is a unique pastime that is creatively assembled to form a working radio or light.

Created by Japansese designer Yuri Suzuki in collaboration with electronics education group Technology Will Save Us, the Denki Puzzle turns circuitry into something people can play with. Conceived while part of the designers in the residence program at the London Design Museum, Suzuki made each part resemble its function. For instance, the capacitor is like a water tank for electricity and so has been shaped like a watering can. Stats for Playful Jigsaw Radios Trending: Older & Mild
