Thismagnetic folding globe is a representation of Earth that easily transitions from flat to three dimensional. Fold it to form a geometric globe or unfold to reveal our flattened planet.When you think of a conventional flatimageof the world, youÃ�??re probably imagining the classicMercator projection map, which dates way back to 1569 - a flat grid with the Americas on the left and Europe, Asia, and Africa on the right.This way of flattening out the mapcreates a massive distortion, to the point where Greenland is almost the size of Africa and Antarctica is a thin line at the bottom.The Dymaxion projection, as developed by Buckminster Fuller, creates a flat map of the Earth with less distortion to the size and shape of landmasses. The map also doesnÃ�??t have a traditional up and down, and the flat sections can be shifted around to show various configurations of the continents that are all accurate.
