Hi Non-Twisty Puzzles fans,

Gardner Ball is a tribute to Martin Gardner. This tribute has the name "Gardner" tessellated around a sphere. The tessellation was designed by Scott Kim, and Oskar 3D-ified it. This math-art object was commissioned by Tom Rodgers. Samples were handed out at the Gathering for Gardner (G4G10) at Atlanta, end March 2012.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the ball at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

I love Scott Kim's designs, and this is a beautiful realisation of one of them. Great idea. I which I could have been at this G4G.

In the video, when you are in the kitchen, sitting in your socks, I was sure that you were going to demonstrate the strength of the ball by standing on it :lol:

Oskar,
What is the name of cat at the end of video?
Is it the same cat as in the middle of video (1:00 min) at the window on background?
