I did it for the first time using popsicle sticks.
It was hard so I don't recommend using popsicle sticks,
maybe skewers and super balls.
I call this a real tesseract because although it's stuck in 3D space,
it has all it's edges of equal length, just like a real cube or a real square.
Often tesseracts are illustrated as a small cube inside a big one.
Not this one! And No, this is not an "impossible object" illusion!
Why did I Make this?
1.A sculpture and to see how hard it was.
2.Imagining the possibilities of making (the frame of) a
"flux conductor" or a "flux inductor" ...
maybe even a "flux capacitor".
3.Wondering what would happen if I made the items in "why #2".
4.It's about time I Make something new on here!
A flux conductor or inductor would perhaps be a wire that follows a
"hamiltonian circuit path" around the hypercube.
That means a wire that goes to each corner only once,
of a square object of any amount of dimensions.
Tesla had not much more than wire to use as electronic parts.
Who knows what an electric tesseract might do?
This model was inspired by the 2D drawing of a hypercube (tesseract).
A Cube is an object with 6 sides which are squares.
A Hypercube is an object with 8 sides which are cubes.
Step 1: Make a cube
lines between them.
It's not so easy with ice cream sticks. I cut angles on the ends so they
were shaped like parallelograms (with a miter) hoping they would line
up perfectly at the corners. I did not do any math to see if 45 degrees
is the correct angle, and still now have not.
In "junkyard mode", I propped it up with cans barely successfully while
I glued it.
