More Tensegrity

Remember when I said we were sort of exploring the concept of tensegrity?  Well, we've taken it a step further!  Morgan decided to attempt to make a very basic structure using the concept of tensegrity, so using the basic tools of elastic bands, straws, and paper clips, he created the lovely little sphere pictured below.

I have to admit, this one is pretty cool.  It may not be the most beautiful or intricate, but it's amazing how strong it is.  It's also very neat that it looks like several pentagons floating in space together.

I think we are going to take this even further sometime soon.

In general if you are willing to put your name to something, I'll post it, but remember to keep your words sweet, because someday you may have to eat them.
