The following are instructive and amusing videos that present the Mobius strip. They demonstrate activities and properties of this unique figure.
A mobius strip is a one-sided surface with only one "edge" and one "face".
This non-orientable surface was named after August Mobius, a German mathematician, in 1858. (and, independently discovered by Johann Listing).

Besides demonstrating subjects in topology (non-orientable surfaces), there is a significant application: use of conveyor belts. An ordinary belt will wear on one side. But, using a Mobius band, will "create" one top surface (and no bottom surface)
