It is a simple Lego version of a mathematical shape, and because of the small size, the hinges take a relatively big share of the volume. However, the same technique can be used for bigger shapes, such as regular polyhedrons, (a cube is a regular polyhedron), Johnson solids, or Archimedean solids. It sounds like I know about geometry but it's a whole new world for me. Anyways, it all started with my interest to build a Technic Lego ball. I ended up making a truncated icosahedron, also known as a 'Bucky ball', and far better known from soccer balls. No worries, the ball will appear soon in rebrickable.

If you like this one, and want to try something bigger (but smaller than the Bucky ball), then have a look at the colorful Regular Dodecahedron designed by Xilanium.
