Better cubic

Looking at some videos on the web I realized I’d maybe “improved” my cube in a detrimental way… there were too many hinges. By severing two, the sequence of states becomes cyclic instead of linear. Here’s how it flexes after that modification.

(It took me a while to realize this is pretty much a 3-dimensional flexagon.)

  1. I remember when there were enough flexagons around the house to use as bookmarks.
    (Hey, at least you don’t have to use extremely expensive machinery and materials to keep yourself occupied.)
    Is there some way we could side the house with origami?
