again some lego math visualization


Andrew Lipson creates sculptures of mathematical surfaces as LEGO models. He cheats a little bit by using some little c program to do the layout but then: there is a whole comunity doing lego models by computer. My personal favorites are the Costa surface (see also here) and the Boy surface.
