Adjustable Cube, compressed in two directions

This cube is a mechanical toy. Its size can be adjusted: the cube can grow or shrink by a factor of about two. It starts out as a cube with a pattern resembling a Jerusalem cross on each face. Units can then slide within each other so that the cube changes its size without any units needing to be disassembled.

 

- Fully extended

- Compressed in one direction

- Compressed in two directions

- Minimum size, compressed in all three directions

 

Cube made from my new unit, Woven Slit Module (WSM), 4:1 paper, 36 modules.
