Elastic Cubes Take Rubber Bands Into the Third Dimension

For some reason mankind has been happy to settle for elastic rubber bands that only exist in two dimensions. So far they've served us mostly ok, but the talented designers at Nendo have realized that taking rubber bands into the third dimension vastly improves their usefulness. From securing rolled up documents, to binding together a bunch of pencils, it's just an all together better design.

And one can't even imagine how painful a cubic rubber band must feel on impact after being fired across a room. That alone could make these totally worth whatever Nendo charges for these once they're available starting in April. [Nendo via Habitusliving]

I'd imagine it'd be kinda difficult to get one of these on like this. Don't you usually get a rubber band on a roll of paper by putting it on near the end and rolling the band down to the middle of the paper? Seems like it'd be a nuisance to do the same with these.
