MKM is an intelligent Structure, which can move not only in two-dimensions but also in three-dimensions. MKM is composed of many micro-structures (cootie catcher: a kind of origami used in fortune-telling games). Every five molecules can form a crystal structure using a specific method. Such crystals can further be connected by the monomers, in order to give rise to the surface. In brief, this complex structure is defined as molecule-crystal-molecule.
No. 448 is the light, which designed on the basis of MKM. It consists of 448 molecules. It exhibits the special characteristics of MKM-the conversion from the flat to the closed space.
