Modular Ball

An easy to fold, but not so easy to assemble modular by Fumiaki Kawahata. This one is very easy to fold, but the assembly is a bit tricky as the modules have to be held together to tuck them inside each other. Basically an extra set of hands would be nice, but you can do it with only one set too.

In the end each module provides support for 2 other modules, it won’t look sturdy but it is.

I made a second video of how to assemble the modular ball. The modules interlock between themselves, so if you remove one module everything falls apart.

Paper to use

You need 6 square papers for it, 2 of each color.
