Minecraft LAVA TRAP infdev Possibly the first example of a trap in infdev, that not only turns the floor into deadly lava, but is triggered by the destruction of a block above the floor in question. Imagine the possibilities! On the technical side, it uses a tessellating floor of sand on torches, and uses a bug where sand turns into lava, if dropped onto open lava on the map floor. The trap is powered by PPL™ (Pig Powered Logic), and is a bugger to set up. No map editor needed, or used. No water is needed for the logic, apart from a little for the crops. See my other videos for examples of the two systems independently.
Tessellation Tessellating an Alhambra tile pattern
Tessellating Canvases. Canvases could be designed so that they fill the plain. There really isn't a shape we couldn't mass-produce, so it is a mystery why art stores don't have hexagons or triangles in them. These curved figures could also have shapes that fit next to them to fill the plane, which would make a more fun multi-canvas purchase. Here is the mathworld article on tessellations. Really old news, actually. Here's the more in-depth look: www.uwgb.edu Rivers and tides:
HEXAGONAL ORIGAMI TESSELLATION for my current architecture project i am ***ysing origami and particularly tessellations to creating a building fabric that can evolve and be hugely flexible. This tessellation is a pretty standard tessellation made of hexagons and equilateral triangles. I drew the original pattern on Autocad and printed it out on a plotter. I think its A1 in size. I then spent 3-5 hours folding all the mountain and valley folds. This video shows just the final stage of the actual tessellating. Boring i know, i went through 5 films, thats why my desk is in front of my Mac. What do you think? i will have the rest of my work on my blog soon so check it out;
Arrows of Freedom This 8" Termesphere shows two set of tessellating (tight fitting patterns) arrows, dark blue ones and light ones. These arrows go in two opposite directions, dark ones down and light ones up. They start on the bottom very compressed together. As they move up, the light arrows start to break away from the blue arrows that have been confining them to their shape. In the end, the light arrows find their individuality leaving the blue arrows as background.
triangle tessellation in the geometry shader Demonstrates a few methods of tessellating a triangle using the geometry shader. The height of the new vertices are based on interpolated normals using Phong Tessellation (Boubekeur, T., Alexa, M. 2008)
Wario Land 3 - Video Walkthrough - Episode #42 The 42nd episode... now we're in the Cave of Flames. Well, it has lots of flames, and the platforms (and walls) have tessellating flame designs (which looks cool). Anyway, you have to jump into a flame pit, because there are LOTS of flame blocks which can only be broken while you're a flame. After that, you need a Spearhead to break the blocks that can only be broken if you throw things at it. So take the Spearhead, break the normal blocks, and walk up to that magical thing. DO NOT WALK INTO IT YET OR ELSE THE SPEARHEAD WILL DISAPPEAR. Instead, stand behind it, and hold B to charge up and throw it far. It will break the blocks and you can go through. After that, just roll down the slope and get the gray key, and go back to near the flame pit to get the treasure. This treasure allows you to clean up the murky water in The Big Bridge, Sea Turtle Rocks, and The Frigid Sea, allowing you to see doorways you couldn't see previously.
Frogs tessellated Animated versions of a tessellating frog pattern (a la escheresque). These animations were created using GIMP 2.6.8 with the Mathmap plugin.
Anatomy of an Escher Flying Horse Escher is the artist that made the art of tessellation famous and popular. One of his simpler tessellations was his flying horses. They are based on the simple geometric shape of a square, and only involved "slides," not rotations or flips. Using this video anyone could create their own tessellating flying horse tile, and maybe redo their bathroom tile or kitchen wall paper!
"Goodbye Ocean"-- Pawn the Musical 11/12/2010 Guerilla Performance at Roble Hall Theater at Stanford University. Pawn is an all-original student-written and produced folk rock musical about a young Asian Canadian soldier's last night in Kandahar, Afghanistan. These ten sold out performances were produced by the Asian American Theater Project (AATP) and Stanford Theater Activist Mobilization Project (STAMP).

Anatomy of an Escher Lizard A tessellation is a tiling of shapes or figures without any gaps or overlaps. The artist MC Escher made tessellations famous with his artwork. One of his most popular pieces was Reptiles, in which tessellating lizards leave the flat page and become alive. This video animation is a study in how Escher created his reptiles from hexagons, complete with all the separate operations, and how he "tiled" a page full of them. It is set to the music of Saint Sans, Carnival of the Animals.

Homage to MC Escher This is a collection of animations which transform pairs of compatible Escher tessellations continuously from one to the other. The animations are separated by fractal patterns. The animation of tessellating leaping dogs is a reconstruction (and improvement, I hope) of an animation by the artist Makoto Nakamura. I created all the animation by reconstructing the Escher tessellations with a vector graphics program, and then transforming them. The music is the Pine Apple Rag by Scott Joplin, performed by Leslie Bridges (L. Bridges made several rags freely available from MP3.com in 1999). The fractal images were created and freely provided by different artists (unfortunately, I have lost their names).
Tessellated! Subway Sandwich Shops officially began tessellating their cheese today, so instead of their previous overlapping stacked cheese triangle pattern, the triangles are supposed to be arranged to never overlap and to offer better sammich coverage. I was happy to see that my local Subway Shop was heeding the new directive, but my happiness soon faded as I realized that this also resulted in getting less cheese. I am almost certain that previous six-inchers were given three pieces of cheese, not two. Am I wrong?
Tessellating Nightmare Rough Riffs A few riffs I have come up with to use on a demo for my project Tessellating Nightmare. Excuse the rhythmic hiccups, beer gets me all psyched up to play but hampers my ability severely.
Hobart to Tasman Peninsula,then Freycinet Penisula - Freycinet National Park, Australia A TripAdvisor™ TripWow video of a travel blog to Freycinet National Park, Tasmania, Australia by TravelPod blogger Nadine. See this TripWow and more at Hobart to Tasman Peninsula,then Freycinet Penisula "Grey and rainy day in Hobart with rushhour traffic on a Monday, good reason to linger over muesli and coffee in the Astor Hotel. We studied the tourist maps and decided it would be cool to venture south-east to Tasman Peninsula. To get to the Tasman Peninsula, we travelled on relatively narrow roads that winded through beautiful gum forests and undulating hills. See the Tasman Peninsula map. There are some beautiful bays around the peninsula, as well as some unique and amazing rock formations. Eaglehawk Neck is a good place from which to see the beautiful coastal rock formations of the Blowhole, Devils Kitchen, Tasmans Arch, Tessellated Pavement and Waterfall Bay. It is situated at the entrance point to the Tasman Peninsula. The view of Pirates Bay and the coastline from the lookout just before Eagle Hawk Neck is stunning. There is a beautiful beach with white sands, blue water and rugged rocky cliffs. Eagle Hawk Neck is a thin strip of land with water on both sides that separates the Peninsula from the rest of Tasmania. This was a barrier to any convicts trying to escape from Port Arthur. Tessellated pavements are some interesting rock formations formed by years of erosion from the ocean. A few kilometers further we saw the Blow Hole. It is a cave ...

Tri Every Angle Termesphere This 24" diameter Termesphere is called TRI EVERY ANGLE. It plays with 5120 triangles coming from a 16 frequency icosahedron. This substructure is used to find tessellating patterns and also is used for all the figures found in this painting.
Tesselations I'm an 8th grade Math teacher. Instead of doing a lecture on tessellations, I led them through a project. We started out with regular shapes that tessellate (mostly equilateral triangles) and learned how to transform the sides to make Escher-esque tessellating shapes by hand. I made a video featuring a couple I really liked so I have something to show future students what I'm looking for when we do this project. While I was at it, I thought, "hey, why not throw it up on youtube so I can show people?" So I did. Thanks for checking it out if you're here. :D Titles & Info: 0:00 "Boo!"

Snap shapes together to make an image This is a simple program I wrote that lets you snap geometric shapes together. You can snap by midpoints or corners, allowing you to very quickly make tessellating images. When you save the file, an SVG is also saved, which is viewable in any web browser. What do you think of this program?
