Craig Kaplan was a PhD student in graphics at U.W. with me, and is now a professor at the University of Waterloo. He has done some beautiful work on tilings and Islamic star patterns in both 2D, and more recently on 3D surfaces. Combining his research with 3D printing increases the coolness factor exponentially, as you can see in the picture below (of an object he designed at Shapeways). He’s also created these beautiful rocket espresso cups.
