# From the cube to the hypercube

A model that illustrates the construction of the prism: we can get a square from a line segment (on the right), a cube from a square (at the centre), a hypercube from a cube (on the left). As a matter of fact, the figure on the left represents the 3-dimensional projection of a hypercube.
