When game critic Jim Sterling uses video clips of the games he reviews on YouTube, the game companies claim copyright ownership of the video and run ads on Sterling’s reviews. He doesn’t like that because his videos are funded by Patreon and he doesn’t think his audience should have to see ads. So what he […]

Dyson Logos’s G+ account is an endlessly scrolling inventory of hand-drawn D&D maps, each one cooler than the last.

Campaigners from Liberty, a civil liberties group, took to the streets of London (and the lobby of the Home Office!) and grabbed peoples’ phones, browsing them while explaining that they just wanted to build a detailed dossier of their lives by looking at their communications, browsing history and location data — mirroring the way that […]

Isn’t it about time to stretch what your Mac can do? I mean, you’ve got plenty of great programs now…but don’t you think you could use some new tools to get your creative, analytical and organizational juices really flowing? It’s spring, so we cleaned up a whole bunch of super-cool apps lying around and packaged […]

In the world of app development, there’s no greater arena to find success than with Android users. About 80% of the smartphones in use today worldwide operate on the Android operating system, so if you build a great app that Android users love, you’re an international rock star. You’ll be able to make sure your […]

Unless you’re a programmer or webmaster, the term SQL probably doesn’t mean much to you. But for those looking to understand more about how and why the web works the way that it does, know this – SQL and its process of managing and presenting large data sets is everywhere…and it’s the most in-demand programming […]

I have a television like that. I hate it.

Needs to have room for Alias DVD series.

Turns out the OÄNDLIG wardrobe I bought from Ikea is the same. I’ve been working on it for 3 years now, and the newest section doesn’t fit in my yard, even. When will this madness end?!

i think it’s cool :)

Reminds me o the no. 216 cabinet, with doors sized according to ISO sizes of paper: A1-A2-A3 etc.

This is not Modulor. Le Corbu cries in his grave (which is Modulor)

At the risk of being pedantic, these drawers seem to be in the Golden Ratio (phi) not Fibonacci. The ratios of successive Fibonacci numbers tend to phi in the limit.

Phi is defined to be the unique number such that if a rectangle’s sides have a ratio phi, and you remove a square based on the smaller side, the remaining rectangle’s sides have ratio phi. It is no less cool than the Fibonacci series, by the way; look it up.

At risk of being even more pedantic:

The drawer’s ratios are squares at 1, 1, 2 (smallest drawer built), 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 (largest drawer built), all of which are Fibonacci series numbers.

Here’s an image so you don’t have to look it up: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/93/Fibonacci_spiral_34.svg/180px-Fibonacci_spiral_34.svg.png

You’re right, my bad for not actually reading the text and just looking at the front view of the cabinet.

You let me be right on the internet!

Hats off to you, Sir.

At the risk of being evener morer pedantica, they’ve stuffed up the opening sequence of the Fibonacci series.

They’ve left a gap for the draw that is meant to represent 0, which in itself doesn’t make sense, and additionally the gap is smaller than the drawer that is meant to represent 1. There is no second drawer equal to 1.This makes it clear that drawer number 2, is not in fact twice the width of the drawer that represents 1, as it is only as wide as a single drawer representing 1 and the lesser space representing 0.

Additionally there are only 6 drawers, so even with the missing 1, they don’t reach 21, but rather 13.

This observation is what motivated my first post. However, if you assume that the smallest drawer shown is a 2, and that the hole represents two 1s stacked on top of each other, then all works out, except figuring out what happened to the two missing 1s.

I suspect the little girl had something to do with it.

That would go nicely with a Sierpinski carpet.

And to think, I’ve just been leaving my pebbles, twigs, and flower petals out on the ground in my yard like a slob!

And I raise you – My Squared-Square Cabinet!

That is nice. I just bookmarked the Make Math Monday article.
