    I think it's a lens cut into a hexagonal shape so that an array of such lenses can be arranged in a honeycomb pattern.

    Ahahahaha... okie.. Then like the others mention, it's probably just a trademark. Like Nikon's lenses are called Nikkor, Minolta lenses are called Rokkor, Fujifilm lenses are called Fujinon, Olympus lenses are called Zuiko.. etc...
