One Side, One Edge (See desc.)
Created on: August 6th, 2006
One Side, One Edge (See desc.)
This object (an umbilic torus) only has one side and one edge - all the spheres are located on the same surface. Pick one and follow it; they all follow the same path.

I agree with the-clansman. This thing must be destroyed. I think if people walked around the streets with these things they could, and probably will, kill Jesus and bring God's wrath down upon us all.

^^Not that I know of. I know it has torus knots, but those are completely different.

...Even if it did come as a 3ds max primitive, the most work went into the animation, not the creation of the object itself.

If it's "entirely possible" to make one in reality, make me one. Right now. Make me ANY object with only one edge. Sure, this thing has one long line, but the one edge thing is bullsh*t. It has a series of edges that coincide to form the illusion of one edge, but there's no such thing as a 1 edged object.

"It has a series of edges that coincide to form the illusion of one edge, but there's no such thing as a 1 edged object." Lol, wrong. Pick a point on the edge and follow it; you'll traverse every "edged" part of the surface, and end up at the starting point again. It's a single-sided, single-edged figure with a nonzero volume. Also: It's not a moebius strip, it's an analogous figure of one.

sh*t, I voted 2 because it's so boring, and then I read the comments and it's like, damn, my faith in humanity is shot. Yes, topology and geometry are amazing, but the fact that these people don't recognize that until they see a YTMND disheartens me greatly. Just go to cut-the-knot.org or google up some academic sites, folks.
