Christy from Instructables sez, "GuokrDIY just posted a fully detailed build of the Escher Waterfall, complete with Google SketchUp model, two videos, and full-on background, models, and textures to look exactly like Escher's original drawing. It's clearly building on the YouTube video postedpreviously on Boing Boing."
In order to make our explanation clear and simple, the structure in the center of the drawing is called "left tower" and a dimensional geometry merged from 3 hexahedrons is placed on the top of the "left tower". And of course the structure in the right is called "right tower" and on its top placed another dimensional geometry merged from 3 octahedrons. And we call the part under the waterwheel the "pool" and from the "pool" there is the "1st flume", the "2nd flume" and so on. Water falls from the "platform" in the upper part of the "left tower".
As the aim of this project is to reestablish the marvelous scene of Waterfall from plane to 3D and present us a vivid show, it is important that: first, how to realize the impossible architecture structure; second, how to realize the water circulation within flume-waterfall circle.
There are many different ways to approach the aim and here is just one of them. You may keep on your own probing and come up with some cool ideas~
And before the project starts, you have to convince yourself that:
1. Perpetual motion is impossible;
2. Perpetual motion is impossible;
3. Perpetual motion is impossible;
Ethos, the private equity firm owned by Republican billionaires that is trying to buy the rights to operate the internet’s .org domain range, said on Friday it will cap price hikes, and will agree to create an advisory board with veto powers to partly address some of the concerns of the nonprofit community.
In the early days of the web, everyone wanted a .com domain for their site. As a result, all the good ones got snapped up. But .com no longer has the cachet it once did. In fact, many new businesses and individuals are opting for other top-level domain extensions. One of the most memorable is […]
As you shiver your way through February, you’re probably thinking about paying your heating bill. But in just a few short months, the summer sun is going to come calling — and the fear of pulling that energy bill out of your mailbox will start becoming very, very real. Air conditioning accounts for about an […]
Despite legalization in 11 states and decriminalization in 15 more, marijuana-based products are still an often tough sell with many Americans. While the psychoactive THC portion of the plant remains controversial, the medicinal impact of the non-altering component of cannibis, CBD, is widely hailed. Many portions of those claims still await medical verification, but for […]
