Random Cool Image: Assembly Instructions ala M.C. Escher


I have long been a fan of the work of artist M. C. Escher. I love his realistic-looking structures that seem utterly plausible … until you look closer and see the impossibility. Well, what if he had designed assembly instructions? That is what an image adafruit suggests, as it shows some Mobius-strip inspired figured attempting to join into a single seemingly simple mechanism. The actual author isn’t specified … but it is a fun drawing in the style of Escher.

Checking into it I found other versions floating around, including one with Dutch ‘assembly instructions’, and this one which was made into a blueprint:

Offbeat   Offbeat

Check out the MC Escher web site for even more cool stuff … and for now, why not enjoy more of his work?

Here is Escher’s Relativity:

Offbeat   Offbeat   Offbeat

And his impossible Waterfall:

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
