Thanks for bringing that.
I am quite familiar with the fibonacci in nature, though had not heard about the honey bees.
And I just never placed it with storms, but as a couple of posters have stated that it is common in vortices, which is just fascinating, that winds,
plants, bee's you name it have this built in.
As we all know, artist have been using it for ages, but here is a couple of unnatural inclusions some might not have realized.
Golden proportion also found on the design of the Volkswagen Beetle, which was designed in 1997 by Jay Mays, Freeman Thomas, Peter Schreyer.
The body fits nearly into the top half of a golden ellipse and the side windows also repeat the shape of the golden ellipse with the door, shown in
Figure 27 (a), (b), (c) and (d). The front and rear view of the car are almost in a square with all surfaces symmetrical. Golden proportion appears on
the design of some other cars shown in Figure 27 (e) and (f).
Thought this was interesting too.
Is the iPhone 5 ugly?
Recently, 62 per cent of people responding to a poll run by Business Insider thought the iPhone 5 ugly. Whilst I wouldn’t necessarily go that far,
the design is visually jarring. One possible reason for this is that the ratio of its height to width has deviated even further than the previous
model (and almost any smartphone on the market) from what is called the “golden rectangle”. The golden rectangle is one in which the length of the
longest side divided by the shortest side is approximately 1.618. The exact number is called the golden ratio, and it is a solution to the equation x2
– x – 1 = 0. Read more: www.businessspectator.com.au...
