On the FractalForums message boards, a user called LhoghoNurbs has posted this wonderful contest-entry for a notional set of fractal cutlery. In a subsequent post, LhoghoNurbs explains that all the image manipulation was done in the GIMP, without any 3D modelling software. LhoghoNurbs wants a set of these, and so do I.
The set includes four pieces:
Cantor fork :: now you can pin a single kiwi seed. Twice in a row.
Recursive spoon :: it will never let you spill a drop of soup. Ever.
Koch knife :: to delicately cut hair-thin slices out of an egg. A raw egg.
The Infinity Set :: the set includes itself. As a subset.
Every piece of the set is inscribed with our Julia logo and our motto
"The Infinities are Possible". Limited quantities. Unlimited price. The
kiwi, the drop of soup and the egg are not included in the box, but
could be ordered separately.
We are proudly presenting our latest kitchenware
set featuring a design distilled for centuries by moulders all over the world; and
based on the latest scientific breakthroughs.
(Thanks, Fipi Lele!)
