The Orb was very similar in principal to the Rubik's Cube. The Orb was a gray sphere, slightly bigger than a softball. It had two halves that could be twisted to turn the multiple slots with colored beads into one continuous slot where all the beads ran together.
Since each slot had its own color of bead, it was challenging to get each color bead back where it should go.
A solution booklet was also available for purchase with The Orb.
