Just Pseudopods of an N-dimensional entity

Others' Projects

Difference Engine

I'm not really sure what happened... I remember Legos from childhood, of course, like anyone, and later, I remember being complacent that my mother wanted to sell my childhood set (now I know she asked less than a fifth of its worth).

Now, though, the insidious Lego Creature has resurrected itself, in thousands of the rectiliner extensions that are all we can see of this great four-(or more?)-dimensional entity.

Familiar 3-dimensional Crosssections I Have Known

I have begun to acquire sets of Lego pseudopoda. I was fine until I found myself calling Lego sales and asking "What's your most complicated set?" and ended up with a dinosaur being delivered to my office. Now, the list has grown; here's the current status:

Serious Virtual Legos

A project using Silicon Graphics Infinite Reality systems was in progress in 1997 to build complex models in virtual space. Now, you too can read about the LEGO Virtual Village
