A lot of people have asked me what Hedron means. Those who do know what it means point out that I’m incorrect in calling the video Hedron.
So to clear any confusion up, let me be clear: “hedron” is not a word. Polyhedron is. “Hedron”, or “-hedron”, is a combining form for a word for geometrical shapes. “Hedron” means faces, or something. Polyhedron, therefore, is a shape with many faces. A die, for example, is a hexahedron, or a six-faced object.
Now you’re probably wondering why I called it Hedron, since they are obviously not geometric solids, which are three-dimensional. Well, technically it could be monohedron, or a solid with only one face (that’s impossible too. But its 2D, so there.) But, I named it Hedron because I went through a phase where every video I made needed to start with the letter “H”. So Hedron.
On another note, I was partly inspired to make this video after reading Shel Silverstein’s The Missing Piece Meets the Big O. My other inspiration was my animation teacher telling me to get my homework done. (No, that didn’t inspire the story, it inspired its completion.)
Well there you have it. Not only did I post a video, I even provided some behind the scenes information. You know, out in the big world, people make behind-the-scenes books and get people to pay for them, and here I am giving it to you free. You should be grateful.
Oh, never mind. That was just a joke. I hope you enjoyed the video and I hope you learnt a new word today.
