Sphereflakes!

Vi Hart is at it again.  This time she is playing with different types of symmetry in snow flakes.  We don't have a bunch of beach balls to cut up, so we haven't tried these yet, but the ideas seem good... Before watching the video, you may want to rotate a few things around in your mind as a warm up.


3D symmetry is fun and all, but it's hard to compare to the Mex Hexaflexagon.  If you don't know what we're talking about, check out these posts...
