Logic-defying arts and crafts: Super Mario Mobius Strip


7:30 PM on 09.27.2012



I can't hear the word "Mobius" without thinking about Sonic SatAM and Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. Buried underneath those are memories from elementary school when we were introduced to the Mobius strip, a seemingly magical object that has a single continuous surface. This is achieved by taking a length of paper, twisting one end 180 degrees, then taping the two ends together. When you draw a line down the middle of the strip, you will end at the same point you began, having traveled both "sides" of the paper without ever lifting your pencil.

Modeler Joaquin Baldwin has brought math magic back with his 3D printed Mobius strip of level 1-1 from Super Mario Bros. Every Goomba and background detail has been rendered on the sandstone sculpt, which takes Mario through the stage, past the castle, then back to the starting point in an endless loop. Sorta like the Minus World!

If you wish to buy one of those showpieces for yourself, you can drop 24 bones at the link below. Also check out the rest of Joaquin's wares here, filled with other cool trinkets like DØG from Half-Life 2 or a polygonal Cloud Strife.

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment being localized this summer

Will a bunch of people complain about how I just don't like anime if I say that Sword Art Online doesn't seem very good? Though at least it might make a passable game. Hard to mess up multiplayer monster fighters with bad wr...more

You know, Dragon Age: Inquisition's box art is pretty cool

It's rare that videogame cover art can energize me enough to want to write about it (unless we're talking the oft-excellent fan-made stuff), but there are exceptions. Not to oversell you on Dragon Age: Inquisition's cover, or anything. It's good! Better than expected coming off of Dragon Age II, certainly. Let's hope that rings true for all aspects of the game.more
