Zometools are collections of precisely made plastic struts and balls. The struts come in several colors and lengths that make the construction of planar and solid designs possible. The balls each have 62 holes which enable many different angles between any two struts. Zomes have been found to have applications in art, architecture, the sciences, and in Uncle Bob’s first love, mathematics.
