Fun Facts

  • In 1971, mathematician Naoki Yoshimoto invented a polyhedral mechanical puzzle in his search to find ways to divide a cube equally in half.
  • The cube is made of 8 interconnected cubes that can be folded or unfolded indefinitely.
  • A solid Yoshimoto Cube can be divided into two stellated rhombic dodecahedrons which then can be folded into two hollow Yoshimoto Cubes.

Yoshimoto cubes can be 3D printed, made out of paper or in our case, made out of LEGO bricks.

Thank you for purchasing a 3agles LEGO Infinity Cube!
