I'm very curious, though, about the animation near the top of the article
you provided: It looks as though the structure is a cube inside another à la
Russian Dolls, both with vertices of variable length, and folding in on
itself. When you said that the walls of a tesseract are cubes, I sort of got
the impression that it was supposed to be like a stubby cross. The walls
don't look at all like cubes to me!
