Miegakure: A puzzle-platforming game in four dimensions Miegakure is a platform game where you navigate a four-dimensional world to perform miraculous feats and solve puzzles.

These actual consequences of the mathematical formulation of 4D space have been thought about for more than a century (in the 1884 novella Flatland for example) but it is the first time anyone can actually perform them, thanks to the video game medium. Our world is three-dimensional: width, depth, and height.

Crystal Enamel Drinking Glasses My kids are old enough that we can all use glass to drink out of now. However, it seems they haven’t outgrown using a million cups everyday to drink from. There’s always a sink full of glasses because they take a new one whenever they get a drink. I thought about doing monograms or even names, but I really wanted a set of drinking glasses that were more stylish and grown up. So instead, I went with the color code system. It all started with this box of drinking glasses I bought at the thrift store for $3.54. Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content.
