I recently stumbled across this new structural joint in an article
on a design blog I follow. It wasn't entirely clear to me how it worked so I decided to try to build it.
It should be noted that the creator Dror Benshetrit retains all legal rights to the idea. The articles say he plans to open source it for use in developing countries, but other commercial uses must be licensed. I reverse engineered a version from frames in the video, although it's close, it's not the proper ratios/dimensions. I did it to get a feel for the concept, and I share it here for the same reason. I don't have a commercial application for it at this time, and if/when I do, I will seek the proper licensing.
