This week's selection is the Super Mario Mobius Strip, by Shapeways creator Joaquin Baldwin.
While endless, one-sided Mobius strips are fascinating unto themselves, Baldwin has made this one even more interesting by infusing Super Mario culture on its surface. The entire level 1 scenario is included on the strip. He says:
All the elements from the level are there: every mushroom, turtle, cloud and star. They are all carved out of the surface at different heights, which looks fantastic when you have a light coming from the side, and each block casts a shadow.
The best part: "The whole level is wrapped around itself in a single surface, and poor Mario begins and ends at the same spot every time".
Available at Shapeways for purchase only in full color sandstone, obviously, for USD$24.
