Penrose fridge magnets kickstarter

Aperiodicity fans, Neil and Heath need your help! Help in the form of money.

Don’t worry, you’ll get something cool out of it – a set of dart/kite Penrose tiling fridge magnets.

There isn’t much more to it than that. It’s a pretty simple idea, they’re just asking for $5000 to get metal dies made so they can cut them out, hence the Kickstarter. At $5 for a pack of 50 fridge magnets, they’re pretty cheap too.

So have a look, and maybe give these chaps some simoleans if you like the idea.

Good news, everyone! I literally jumped out of my seat and punched the air when I saw this story. It’s as if this site was set up specifically to report on this exact piece of news.
