If you’ve ever thought much about building a geodesic dome, for whatever reason, it soon becomes obvious that most of the mojo is in the hubs, where the struts come together in radial groups. The long and storied history of the geodesic dome includes a large number of ingenious solutions—commercial, homemade, and readymade—to the “hub problem,” and the good folks at Domerama have compiled a bunch of them together on one page. Fun browsing, even if you’re not dreaming of domes so much anymore. [via Boing Boing]
