Short summary
This paper investigates a special cube-connected toy that can be reconfigured into several different structures by hand operation. The reconfiguration of the toy is formulated by using an exclusive mathematic modeling through which the physical reconfiguration of the toy can be expressed and manipulated in an algebraic consideration. This research is an example of how mathematics can be applied to study the reconfiguration of mechanisms and mechanical structures.
