Polyhedron truncation, an interactive toy

#1

I made an interactive “toy” for exploring polyhedron truncation of the five Platonic solids.

I think it’s most enjoyable to play with on a mobile device, where the connection to your hands feels more direct.

As always, Elm was a wonderful companion to have on this project (source). :yellow_heart:

Really smooth dragging of the figure and very nice touch with the accelerometer input :ok_hand:

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, Joaquin! Changing the perspective with the device orientation was a fun detail to add. :smile: (But on iOS, you won’t see the effect now unless you enable Settings > Safari > Motion & Orientation Access, as the iOS 12.2 update disables the Device Orientation API by default.)
