A nibble is equivalent to half a byte or 4 bits, encodable on one of the 6 faces of a die.

A 6-sided die can easily be built using 6 sonobe origami modules, 2 dice can be used to store 8 bits of data for the paper computer. This is an original idea from Maleza.

The 6 faces of the dice are as follow:

sAsBsC
sDsEsF
