order 2 noodle sphere mapping
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: This is the simplest interesting mapping of noodle sphere coordinates. The hues circling around the rainbow colors visualize the "longitude" (along the noodle). The "latitude" is shown as desaturation or darkening, respectively, depending on which half-equator or pole we are approaching. The overlaid checkerboard pattern is meant to emphasize the coordinate flow.

These coordinates are not continuous at the half-equators, because latitude increases in opposite directions on opposite sides.

No clue yet if this yields interesting 3D fractal shapes. The code for this mapping is a bit convoluted, and the mapping itself has several "ugly" theoretical qualities.

I'm glad you have continued on this line of research. I think humans got conditioned to spherical objects revolving on a fixed axis (like the Earth).
To me this sphere is rotating on an oscillating axis because any rotation of a sphere involves an axis.

It could also be an optical illusion because it's really a series frames that can easily fool the viewer.

I hope you are able to improve the code because it could be applied to other solid objects. :thumbs:
