Matt's whole talk is interesting but you can skip over segments that don't interest you. Just be sure to watch to the end. Why? Spoiler alert! He goes from Möbius strips to Rubik's cubes to 4D visualization, and ends by showing off my 4D Rubik's cube! He closes with a glimpse of a 5D version by a collaborator on the 4D puzzle. (That's you, Roice!) At that point he stops because he knows that all of the brains in his audience are completely blown. This is understandable though something of a shame because other members of our community have created even more spectacularly complex twisty puzzles in up to seven dimensions, hyperbolic 3-spaces, and even dimensionless abstract polyhedra. And yes, all of these have been solved. There seems to be no limit to the levels of insanity in puzzle building and puzzle solving. All of these puzzles are linked from the main 4D cube page here http://superliminal.com/cube/cube.htm

An art piece by Henry Segerman and myself titled Hyperbolic Catacombs is now part of an AMS mathematical imagery album!

We originally submitted it to the 2015 JMM art exhibition, and you can see that full exhibition here:
