shape / Folding geometry: 6 modules from squares
using standard folding geometry. There are
versions from 4x4 and 3x3 grids.
Date: The 3x3 grid version was discovered by
Kenneth Kawamura in the early to mid 1970s.
Robert E Neale independently discovered the same
design, and quite possibly also the 4x4 version,
but cannot now recall at what date the discovery
was made. Michael Naughton and I both also
discovered both versions for ourselves in 1991
and 1988 respectively. Michael realised that the
proportions of the designs could be varied so
that the flat faces become oblongs rather than
squares. He calls this variable version the
