    (Rather Simple) How to fold a transforming Fidget Pyramid! It's actually five pyramids that snap together to become one pyramid.

    It also transforms into a 3-D 4-pointed star that makes a loud noise when you tap on it, and it transforms into a bird beak that chomps when you pull on the sides.

    Last but not least, it performs two other super cool fidgety motions, which is really why it's called a Fidget Pyramid.

    I don't know about you, but at least I am amazed at all of the things this model can do!

    I happened upon this model as I was trying to design a one-piece ninja star with longer points.

    I started out by trisecting all of the corners of the square on my way to make narrow points and then POOF!....

    this thing appears! I still haven't figured out the ninja star yet, but this model sure is cool!

    Update: I've just found out that this pyramid was previously discovered by Paolo Bascetta who taught it at the German Origami Convention in 2012.

    He has given me his approval to keep this video up.

    As far as I know the fidget portion of the model is my own addition.
