Yay, even more new toys have arrived. These are regular polygons that can be used to fill an infinite plane with a repeating pattern.
These shapes are not magnetic like the Penrose tiles, but they come in four colors and five shapes, regular polygons with three sides (equilateral triangles), four sides (squares), six sides (regular hexagons), eight sides (regular octagons) and twelve sides (regular dodecagons).
A few years back, I drew pictures of some of the possible mix and match patterns that create regular tilings of the plane, and now I can re-create these with the new toys. This shot shows that the number of pieces used is finite.
But if I take a close-up, you can see that this could be part of a pattern that repeats indefinitely.
Thanks again to the folks at SeriousPuzzles.com, where I bought my new toys.
New toys! So much fun.
