Outside the Box

Idle hands are now a multi-dimensional playground. They pick up this seemingly-innocent cube from the shelf or desktop where it's been resting. But then the cube begins to shift—its angles flexing, its sides stretching. Those hands continually press the cube into new forms. Sure, you could set it back down—but why? You can explore the principles of perspective, as the cube becomes flat while still looking three dimensional. You can visit new realms of mathematics: you are, after all, playing with a geometric solid called a "parallelepiped." This mind-bending gadget from the ingenious mind of designer Ben Hopson is made of 72 individually moving pieces, all working together in fluid motion. Sure to fall into the curious hands of teens and adults alike. Made in China.
