The Synergy Ball

The Synergy Ball (paper model)
The Synergy Ball, shown at right (click on image for larger view), is an inexpensive paper model that combines the tension and compression elements of a tensegrity into each die-cut piece of card stock. The more complicated Tensegritoy uses strings for the tension and sticks for the compression elements. There are nice pictures of a variety of different tensegrity structures at Shelter Systems.
