To each of the symmetry groups of the Platonic solids we adjoin a carefully designed involution yielding topological generators of PU(2) which have optimal covering properties as well as efficient navigation. These are a consequence of optimal strong approximation for integral quadratic forms associated with certain special quaternion algebras and their arithmetic groups. The generators give super efficient 1-qubit quantum gates and are natural building blocks for the design of universal quantum gates.
