I Have Seen The Future And It Is An "Infinity Cube" (Or - The Best Alternative To A Book Of Stamps)
For those of you who are wondering what a book of stamps has to do with an "Infinity Cube" all I will say is - it is not in your interests to leave me alone with a book of stamps if I am bored,  The squares where the stamps are stuck will probably end up with their rims folded so you may encounter slightly more difficulty than usual when it comes to detaching the aforementioned stamps in preparation for attaching them to your desired envelope, etc.  The resulting "origami" will also probably greatly resemble an "Infinity Cube" when it is stretched out.  You have been warned!!!

Regular readers will probably know that I am a big fan of gadgets.  The more pointless the better.  Although, I couldn't quite see the point of the "Fidget Spinner" craze - I prefer my pointless gadgets to have at least some use rather than just spinning them.

I was looking on Amazon when I saw something which looked very interesting (so I bought three different varieties of it).  It was a cube which advertised itself as an "Infinity Cube".  Luckily it had photos to show what you could do with it.  Just think along the lines of the sliding glasses case which some people (including me) have - the one which you can slide open and shut with different colourschemes on each side???

The photo which really grabbed my attention was something like this one

Obviously that was not the original photo on Amazon - I took it on my bedside table.

That particular "Infinity Cube" looks like this when it comes out of the box


A four square by four square cube (photo taken on my bedside cabinet)

Yes - I know - I am extremely easily amused.  Just leave me folding and unfolding an "Infinity Cube" and you will keep me quiet for hours on end.  I suppose it could be because I have never seen the point in origami or anything which involves patience and dexterity (never mind halfway decent sight for peering at small things) - but I love just being able to open and fold things without feeling as though I have to "create" something as an end product.

If you are interested in "Infinity Cubes" they are available at all sorts of prices - from cheap plastic to unbreakable aluminium.  The one in the photos above was one of the cheapest ones - I also bought an aluminium one (which is just blank cubes inside and out) and one which is a bit of a strange take on a Rubik's cube made out of plastic.
