Fun with flexagons II

Thanks to avon_deer for pointing out that the second installment of the video series on flexagons was recently posted!

Check out the video description for interesting links and stuff!

As for myself... I've not made any more flexagons yet beyond the four I have so far, but I've started a fifth one; and I finally did get some thinner paper, too. Attempts to find flimsy paper (yes, it's really called that) or bible paper were unsuccessful (and glassine would obviously not be suitable), but I found a store that has 50g/m² printer paper; they ordered a pack for me, and in the meantime, I picked up a pack of 65g/m² printer paper that they actually had in stock. It does feel thinner than the usual 80g/m² variety, too, and it'll be interesting to see how it will perform. I've got the pattern printed and cut out — I'll just have to glue it now.

And after that, I'll probably read up some on the background again, the mathematics behind them and all that. :)
