either in science or engineering?
I remember the days of belt driven machines - OK, event in those days, they were fit for the museum of industrial archeology, but some of them still worked fine (late 1950's that was). Sometimes the belts were in the shape of the Mobius-strip. Not only did that allow for an other sense of rotation (driving axle versus driven axle) but it also made the driving belt wear out more evenly.
Lat time I looked, none of those used a mobius strip.
I lookedAnd, like I said, there are no windmills, propellors, thermometers or hygrometers. There was just some bloke being amazed that if you cut a strip of paper in half you get two copies of it (ie 2 strips of paper) and that this is true even if tyou glue a few pieces together.He then went on about some "mobius made from 5 elements" in which he had coloured the different sides.Well, since the point about a mobius strip is that it hs 1 side...Can you guess how impressed I am?
Would a mobius band with only 1/4 twist impress you?
I liked the symbolism of a mobius wedding ring- the two become one idea is sweet.The use of half a twist on belts and such to even out wear and tear has already been noted.The non-inductive wiring is a neat idea too. What I don'tsee is any practical purpose to the bits of coloured paper in the youtube vid.
No doubt, if you had come up with practical applications you would have mentioned them rather than just saying I'm unimaginative.
