Möbius Strip Fun

I would like to leave this month off on a more positive note so here a few möbius treats.



This image is from the Autologlyphs website. Henry Segerman put the word möbius into a möbius strip. You will also find a cube cube, a torus torus and more.
This may be a little dry if you are not a knitter but I think it is pretty cool that it is possible to knit a seamless möbius strip.


And we can't leave this without Escher's ants and some related math: http://www.cut-the-knot.org/do_you_know/moebius.shtml

Enjoy.
