In 1704, Sebastien Truchet considered all possible patterns formed by tilings of right triangles oriented at the four corners of a square.
For a detailed explanation of Truchet Tiling visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sebastien_Truchet
Press the green "Random Sequence" button to randomly pick a new tiling sequence.
Press the green "Set Sequence" button to enter in a 1 through 4 digit sequence number representing the tiling pattern as described below.
Press the green flag to start tiling.
The tiles are as follows;
1 = upper left corner right triangle
2 = upper right corner right triangle
3 = lower left corner right triangle
4 = lower right corner right triangle
Some interesting sequences to try :
42 (same as 4222)
Post your favorite sequences here.
Note: the above numbers represent a 2 by 2 block of 4 triangluar tiles which tesselate from the lower left corner of the display.
The project is a remix of nevit's Tiling project on which it is based.
