Kaleidocycle Hinges

Dustin has a helpful video up on our hinge research to date. There are still shots embedded in the video, but they go by pretty quickly (we will leave them up longer in future). You can see them below.

Also, here are Dustin’s drawings of the types of hinge we have explored so far. Click to enlarge.

    The combination of the video and his drawings and then the still shots are fabulous! Thanks

    Good because I’m making triangles but not sure what to do with them.

    I’m sure you already tried an MRAW hinge, what are the results?

      We haven’t, actually – that seems very visually bulky, way more beads than needed?
