Echochrome

Echochrome seems pretty cool. It is a puzzle game, with game play involving rotating a world occupied by Oscar Reutersvärd’s impossible constructions to be traversed by a mannequin figure. I don’t know who Oscar Reutersvärd is, but he sounds like an awesome guy.

I also learned that in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “I, Borg”, a plan was made to destroy the entire race of Borg—malevolent cybernetic aliens whose minds were interconnected—by showing one of the Borg a picture of a highly complex impossible constructions. This plan was dismissed as being genocide, so its potential results were never seen.

Wikipedia is awesome.

  3. It’s Oscar’s fault for calling it the Penrose triangle, he just set Roger Penrose up perfectly to take all the credit.
