About this Product

Inspired by the great artwork of M. C. Escher... with a twist !

This Moebius strip and its ants has been carefully designed to be 'playable'.

It is possible to explore the moebius strip in a tactile way, by sliding around the ants, to get different configuration (both ants on the outside, both inside, one inside and one outside).

I think this demonstrates well the possibilities of 3D printing, and hope these 'Moebius Ants' will make it to Siggraph :-)
