The perfect iPhone’s imperfect geometry I’ll admit, I hate the notch. I see it as a necessity, and I acknowledge its presence (with red-hot hatred), and I’m sure you do too,...

Angular Casa Casi Cubo in Chile plays with light, wind and shadow

Casa Casi Cubo in Chile uses geometry and patterns to provide shelter from the strong local winds — letting in tons of light. LAND Arquitectos designed the house as a pavilion-like structure that plays around with different shapes to create a balance between protection from the elements and exposing its occupants to expansive views of the sea.[...]

Researchers in England Are Criss-Crossing Cropland With Wildflowers

Croplands are always mesmerizing from above, with their patchwork geometries and endless swirls. But anyone droning over England's farmlands this spring might notice an unusual embellishment: Dozens of the country's fields have been striped with careful, even rows of wildflowers. They're not just cool decorations, or a colorful message for UFOs. Show More Summary

Silicon nanoblock arrays create vivid colors with subwavelength resolution

Until now, the metamaterials used to create tunable color from structural geometry have been based on metals. Although effective in achieving high resolutions, metallic materials suffer from inherent energy losses at visible wavelengths, which makes optimizing color purity challenging. By comparison, the resonance of silicon materials enables high reflectance and purity.

The Langlands program and non-commutative geometry

The Bulletin of the AMS just made this paper by Julia Mueller available online: “On the genesis of Robert P. Langlands’ conjectures and his letter to Andre Weil” (hat tip +ChandanDalawat and +DavidRoberts on Google+). It recounts the story of the early years of Langlands and the first years of his mathematical career (1960-1966)leading up […]

New exhibitions prove there’s no furniture like architect-designed furniture

At NYC’s Friedman Benda gallery, a visual feast for design lovers The term “architectural” is often used to describe designs that boldly deploy lines and geometry, with a 3D quality that renders them sculptural and oh-so-striking. Sometimes it’s applied to clothing and jewelry, other times pastry or floral arrangements. Show More Summary

3-D printing improves cell adhesion and strength of PDMS polymer

(Penn State) Combining two different polymer forms can switch manufacturing of silicone parts from molding, casting and spin coating of simple forms to 3-D printing of complex geometries with better mechanical characteristics and better biological adhesion, according to a team of Penn State researchers.

First-Person "Impossible" Game 'Glitch Dash' Gets First Trailer and is Close to Being Finished

In June of last year, we posted about Glitch, a first-person take on the "impossible" game genre popularized by the titular The Impossible Game [$0.99] as well as Geometry Dash [$1.99] and many others. Basically, a twitchy fast-reaction platformer but in a first-person perspective. The early glimpses of the game looked really cool, and developer

nc-geometry and moonshine?

A well-known link between Conway’s Big Picture and non-commutative geometry is given by the Bost-Connes system. This quantum statistical mechanical system encodes the arithmetic properties of cyclotomic extensions of $\mathbb{Q}$. The corresponding Bost-Connes algebra encodes the action by the power-maps on the roots of unity. Show More Summary
