The Dymaxion Map projection was designed by Buckminster Fuller and is intended to be a more accurate representation of the Earth’s surface on a 2D plane. A slight modification maps the surfaces onto the faces of an icosahedron so it can be folded up into a globe. Behold!
Cut out of Proofgrade maple and assembled using – get this – gaffer tape. (I spent way too long trying to use magnets, ended up giving up after the unassembled pieces lay in my workshop for a couple of months.)
The Flat Earth Society would be proud.
