Below is an animated Mobius Strip. I can imagine this being used in an assembly plant somewhere in the States.
Picture it, chocolates coming off of the Mobius conveyer with Ethel and Lucy manning the packing stations at the chocolate factory.
What is a Mobius Strip well The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 says the following:
Mobius strip \Mo"bi*us strip`\, Mobius strip \M["o]"bi*us
strip`\, Moebius strip \Moe"bi*us strip`\, n. [From August F. M["o]bius, a German mathematician.]
A mathematical object, or a physical representation of it, which is a two-dimensional sheet with only one surface. It is constructed or visualized as a rectangle, one end of which is held fixed while the opposite end is twisted through a 180 degree angle and joined to the fixed end. It is a two-dimensional object that can only exist in a three-dimensional space.
The moebius strip was the subject of a famous woodcut by M. Escher, published in 1963.
