4D rotating cube
The movie shows the stereographic projection of a rotating four dimensional cube onto a three dimensional hyperplane. Imagine the cube as a wire frame in three dimensions. The picture you see on the screen is an additional projection onto a two-dimensional plane. See the bandwidth-friendlier Wireframe version .
