What have u guyz come up with to fill the rectangle ?
Does it strictly have to stick inside it (other than being flat) ?

The instructions on page 4 of the app say that it must remain in the physical confines of the rectangle. The thing that I found disconcerting is that there's no space to say WHY what you put into the rectangle is interesting to you. So what would it mean to put anything in there...?

is this like the Rice square?

yup..it really doesn't make sense that way.
I wonder whether to send it all blank.. (or with a black dot in the center, probably with the coordinates (0,0) ) :)

I'm sure they get lots of people that do that thinking they're cute.

well Afk, of course it's going to be something "cute", because if it isn't, it's something boring.
they're testing your imagination, your creativity.
and ironically: "do you go outside of the box?"

As I have said before, I would some shiny paper to mimic a mirror. Isn't the adcom who will read your app the most interesting person at ... this moment?
