Ghostcubes Are Mysterious And Magically Mathematical [Video]

Åberg created the so-called “Ghostcubes” which are a strange system of cardboard boxes that can fold in a number of mathematically confusing but mesmerizing ways. Gizmodo also points out that Åberg likes to juggle, and that he’s done a couple of different design projects in the past–but that’s it. Otherwise, there’s not much else to say, except that the mysterious designer is selling a short documentary about his cubes on his site.
