Opaque Cube Puzzle

You are making an opaque cube (ie you cannot see through its sides). It can be any size that you want it to be. Where do you place the cube so that you can see as many sides as possible?

We can only see 3 sides at the most no matter how unless we use something else to see more sides... can't we? :S

Tilt onto one of the four corners. You will see all four sides

Put it in a hall of mirrors so you can potentially see an infinite amount of sides.

Suspend it or place it on a stand in a room containing several mirrors or a single concave mirror placed opposite the side or corner you are looking at. Also, choosing a smaller cube would allow you too use a realistic size concave mirror.
