I enjoy seeing promising upcoming games pop up in our forums, and A Trail is surely one of them, especially if you're a fan of games like Geometry Dash [$1.99]. A Trail is a fast paced 2D platformer where you guide your little cube through various levels. The twist in the formula is you have
Visual Center is a website that takes an image and attempts to find its compositional center point. It works well with designy images that have an obvious geometry to them and well-defined shapes to find and center — think logotype surrounded by whitespace. I'm not having a lot of success with photographs, though. [via]
We see a lot of designers doing daily personal projects, like a letter a day, or a photo a day, however I love the idea of Isabella Conticello to work on a geometry a day. She simply explored basic shapes, simple colors to create a series of very cool designs. Show More Summary
The linear geometry and unadorned decoration keep the focus on the Norwegian sky and snow.
Scientists have discovered how the electrical resistivity of carbon nanocoils (CNCs) depends on their geometry. The finding, which required development of a new resistivity measuring apparatus, paves the way for CNC-based nanodevices ranging from electromagnetic wave absorbers to nano-solenoids and extra-sensitive mechanical springs.
Delighting fans of romantic geometry and weird, crown-shaped hats—and rapidly depleting our precious supply of “Stay outta Riverdale” Simpsons references—The CW has announced that it’s ordering Greg Berlanti’s Archie adaptation Riverdale to series. Show More Summary
Charles Ehresmann's complete works are now available for free here: Charles Ehresmann: Oeuvres complètes et commentées. There are 630 pages on algebraic topology and differential geometry, 800 pages on local structures and ordered categories, and their applications to topology, 900...
Eve: Valkyrie drops you into the cockpit of a starship, but when I first loaded it up, it dropped me into the cockpit geometry itself. The Rift I was wearing seemed to think I was a giant, and I was left peering at the majesty of the universe through parts of a control panel. Show More Summary
Frustrating and fun, Geometry Dash will feed your side-scrolling need! Geometry Dash is like a marriage of two of the most frustrating games you'll ever play: The Impossible Game and Flappy Bird. It's also a lot of fun, so let's dig in! $1.99 - Download now You start out as a hop-happy icon with the goal of making it through each level in one go. Show More Summary
Woven Hendecagon Blue/Gold by Scott Vorthmann There's something so eye pleasing and satisfying about staring at a geometric pattern created to delight, with every little detail accounted for and geometry so mathematically sound it makes math teachers tear up. Show More Summary
An assessment of rivers in the US suggests that although there is a relationship between increased flood size and erosion, the effect is most pronounced for moderate floods. Understanding the effects of climate on the geometry and erosion...Show More Summary
In a race to produce the cheapest and most efficient full-color 3D object, we think Disney’s Research facility (ETH Zurich and the Interactive Geometry Lab) may have found the key. Combining hydrographic printing techniques with plastic...Show More Summary

Diesel? What’s that? Volkswagen is embracing a far less controversial type of fuel with its new 1.5-liter TSI engine, unveiled yesterday at the Vienna Motor Symposium. The ultra-efficient four-cylinder uses variable turbine geometryShow More Summary
Volkswagen used this week’s 2016 Vienna Motor Symposium to present its next-generation 4-cylinder engine. The new engine, dubbed the EA211 TSI evo, is a turbocharged 1.5-liter unit equipped with variable turbine geometry (VTG) like that found on high-performance engines from Porsche. VTG, which first appeared on a gasoline engine in the...
Danya from Danya Banya has a fun kids’ art idea for our ABCs and 123s series – stamping with 3D wooden blocks to create 2D shapes! It encourages kids to explore 2D and 3D geometry in a creative, hands-on way. Painting 2D Shapes withShow More Summary
Borrowing tech already used for Porsche models, the engine produces maximum torque from 1,300 rpm.
Volkswagen's new EA211 TSI Evo uses the Miller cycle, variable turbine geometry, and cylinder deactivation to maximize efficiency and torque in a small package. Continue reading Volkswagen's new engine packs a variable geometry turbo...Show More Summary
