Have you ever wondered what would happen if a topo map mated with a pop-up book? No, you probably haven’t; you’re not that strange. I don’t know where these guys got the idea to make pop-up topographical maps for ski resorts, but the concept is original enough. It’s meant as a visualization aid: ski resorts, after all, are pretty damn vertical places, whereas maps are inherently flat. No idea whether this concept works in practice. They’ve got a couple of maps out already, with more promised. Via Gizmodo.
