Fucking helicones, how do they work?

But, but, but, the pine cone IS a helix. It’s just not obvious at a casual glance.

Same for some evergreen trees’ branches.

Such a satisfying sound as it snaps into place!

Pity we can’t hear it in a goddam animated gif.

The Helicone was created by the Stanford artist/mechanical engineer John Edmark, whose website is a trove of wonderful things. https://web.stanford.edu/~edmark/ (Also check his Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/johnedmark/videos)
