This single cube transformation is beautiful. It consists of 12 individual pyramids and can transform into six different shapes (including the original cube). It’s also possible to join several cubes together to form even more diverse shapes. I find it mesmerising to watch, and would love to get my hands on one or four of them to play about with. It seems so simple, yet so complex at the same time.
