    They actually call it a hyperbolic paraboloid. Needlessly fancy name, I know. You can make it with a square, rectangle, pentagon, octagon, circle, you name it. It's also a technique used in some pretty fancy origami models. It get's really cool when you use curved concentric creases on a circular piece of paper with the center cut out. Check out this guy's work. http://erikdemaine.org/curved/
    Cool instructable by the way.

    I think it is a bit possible, but I think it takes many of it

    Interesting shape - I wonder if several together could make a lamp shade?
