Hinged Greek Cross Tessellation

The applet implements a hinged realization of the Greek Cross tessellations. I have been sent a link to a video of such a tessellation which took my fency but which I misplaced, quite unfortunately. I am grateful to John Sharp who located the page thus enabling me to give credit where credit is due.

In the applet below, two draggable points determine the size and the orientation of the crosses. To see them move relative to each other use the scrollbar at the bottom of the applet.


This applet requires Sun's Java VM 2 which your browser may perceive as a popup. Which it is not. If you want to see the applet work, visit Sun's website at http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp, download and install Java VM and enjoy the applet.


What if applet does not run?
