Similar to one of those hand-held-slide-puzzles-with-one-square-missing (what are they called?), except it's a bit bigger and you need a powerful motor and some cleverly wired pulleys to rearrange the blocks.

If you want to move the water feature to the bottom of the garden, simply perch yourself in a big tree and manipulate the wireless handheld puzzle controller and the garden will follow suit.

Similar idea, but more ambitious. [hippo, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       Cool.

You could have a system of rails and wheels under the blocks in order to make moving them about a bit easier.

       or you could automate it... Some kind of random pattern generator. Wake each morning to a new garden layout.

       And when they're arranged in a certain pattern, a big smiley-face results.
