To help you pass the time during this period of social isolation, Kodak has come up with an idea: a jigsaw puzzle containing more than 50,000 pieces that's as long as a bus — yours for just $599.95.
Billed as the world’s largest puzzle, the jigsaw features 27 photographs featuring wonders of the world such as the Taj Mahal and the New York City skyline. Each individual photograph is made up of 1,900 pieces and was taken by a professional photographer.
The 27 images slot together to create a giant puzzle that measures around 28.5 feet x 6.25 feet.
“You’ll see the quality in every piece,” Kodak claims. The sheet of instructions explains that the puzzle comes in 27 bags and includes a reference poster to help you understand how it fits together. “We suggest opening one bag at a time and assembling one puzzle at a time,” says the instructional leaflet. How boring.
To begin your first photograph, you’ll need a flat surface measuring 39 inches x 24 inches. For the more adventurous, Kodak has advice if you plan to assemble the whole thing: “We recommend a floor or table no less than 29 ft wide x 6 ft tall.” Finally a use for that 30-foot dining table you've had tucked away in the back of your closet.
The puzzle should be available on Amazon very soon. Is this the perfect COVID-19 gift? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
