Although the name implies any half of a cube, a hemicube is usually a cube cut through a plane parallel to one of its faces. Therefore, it consists of one square face, two 2:1 aspect ratio rectangles, and two 1:2 aspect ratio rectangles.
In some cases, a hemicube may be used in environment mapping or reflection mapping.
