This Demonstration gives a variety of animated rotations of a hypercube in four dimensions with eight spaced cubes projected onto three dimensions. An axis (set of fixed points) of a four-dimensional rotation is a plane. As a simple example, stop the animation and set all the angles to zero. Drag the first slider; this rotates the hypercube without distortion about the - plane, which in three dimensions represents a rotation about the axis.
