Hi guys,

Happy new year!

I’m attending a conference in Banff, Canada. Just now I went to the lounge of the hotel of the conference center, and I saw a huge model of the cantellated 600-cell.

Photo of the monster:

Here’s some background of this model:

It’s the first time that I see this kind of model for 4D object and it’s very impressive.

I have to admit I don’t really remember the meaning of cantellation. And before reading the introduction I didn’t know what this model was.

I’m sorry that this post is not really about twisty puzzles. But I hope you find it interesting. Please let me know if the links to the photos don’t work.
