"Two stellated rhombic dodecahedrons" - try saying that when you've had a couple beers.

This was awesome.

I think what it boils down to is the fact that you can fit two objects into the space of one once they are designed correctly.

With the two silver & gold cubes all you see it the outside 4 X 4 surface which look 'solid'. However I'm sure these two cubes are hollow enough to encapsulate one another. So the genius in this is to make it work.

Once again this vid is awesome & I'm presuming the Japanese inventer is awesome too :D

it would be cool if it had neodymium magnets inside so that the surfaces would snap together.

I once had 1 of those cube thing. You could fold it in different shapes revealing commercial stuff. No stars inside though.
