  • It's a big bag of shimmering forest green parts! Why "shimmering?" Because I mixed together blue and green plastic resin by mistake, and slight color variations give the struts that "evergreen-tree-in-the-winter-sun" look.  This is a limited edition kit, because I don't intend to make that same mistake again! Don't let the red and white balls in the background fool you, these are all forest green parts.
  • We can't exactly call this "monochrome" due to the slight color variations among the struts, but it's darn close. One nice thing about this particular color: you won't confuse your forest-green blue lines with your Zometool green lines, because they are 2 different shades of green. Did you know that the human eye can distinguish between up to 500 different shades of green (more than any other color in the spectrum? It's 'cause green light is lethal to plants and we evolved in the forest!)
  • You can build anything you'd normally use "blues" for, like this "wreath" projected from 15 dimensions. Doesn't it make cool Penrose tiles? (Note: all those struts are the same length, even though the tiles are subdivided in the Divine Proportion!) But if you wanted to build a 2D shadow of the same model, you'd need to use 2 different lengths of struts.
  • Here's the same wreath up close and in perspective -- you can see that the pattern is actually generated from "fat" and "skinny" blocks (like to Richert Blocks, they are 4D cube shadows, or rhombic dodecahedra, projected from a hyper-cubic lattice). It's all one length of "blue" struts, because the edge-length is preserved in the squash from 15D to 3D
  • You also get instructions for "Ice Crystals and Stars," as well as the "Buckyball." The 3D star models (the stellated icosahedron and stellated dodecahedron) require two "Ice Crystals and Stars" kits, but you can do it all with one Green Christmas kit! Or, for that matter, with White Christmas, or Red Christmas. Think of the fun you could have with all three colors! ¿How about "Cinco de Mayo?"
  • Here's Mike Stranahan in a BigZome buckyball at the recent STEAMfest at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in our home town, Longmont Colorado. Anything you can build in "blue" lines (regardless of actual color) can be reproduced in BigZome. Let us know if you have any cool ideas!
