Hexaflexagons! Yet another awesome video from @vihartvihart:

So, now I know that hexaflexagons are awesome! On Vi Hart’s YouTube channel she describes herself as a professional mathemusician at KhanAcademy. Here’s the description of her latest video:

This video is based on a true story. Arthur H. Stone really did invent the hexaflexagon after playing with the paper strips he’d cut off his too-wide British paper, and really did start a flexagon committee (which we’ll hear more about in the next video). The details and dialogue, however, are my own invention.
More info coming soon, along with patterns. But in the mean time you can find instructions and printable patterns on other parts of the internet.
