what was the point of that?

Eh. Someone went to architecture or industrial design school. It's been done before, it looks cool but there's not many real applications for this kind of thing.

When he made the little cube "walk" across the floor, I thought it might have some application in robotics.

A robot made in this fashion would be able to change its shape to suit its current task.

How's his student loan repayments coming?

You know, those would be useful as... uh, you could use those in a...  hmmm.  You know what?  Let me get back to you on that.

Maybe, but very limited usefulness. Wheels are better for making things move and there are only a few shapes, which are all 'stack of boxes'. Something that was a snakelike line of boxes would be much more effective as a shape changing robot. I think someone actually created something like this a couple years ago.  Oh, looky! Linky

They've used Hoberman spheres for expandable satellites.

Not sure why everyone is all WHAR UTILITY. Looks like they're props for his act.

It's more tolerable when you mute the music out, though not by much.

"Reasoning", actually. That talent is called "reasoning". With some "design" mixed in.

These things can sometimes find useful applications, even if they look kind of silly or pointless at the moment.

For example: the Miura fold, used in satellite panels -- one action unfolds the entire array.

So just store this in the corner of your mind. You never know. you might someday be stuck with a difficult-to-solve problem and *lightbulb* Hey, wasn't there some nutball on Youtube that did that *thing* with boxes ...

WOW Better than the local car lot's President Day's event! And, the other car lot's... and the other 36 car lot's....

I think we were assuming that since the act sucked, it must have just been a presentation of the object for its unique value.

I keep a blanket in my car's first aid kit that probably uses the same fold :)

I don't think that's his act. From his website it looks like he's some kind of juggler/magician/circus guy.
