Prepare to waste at least 3 mins trying to figure this thing out. It is called the “Klein Bottle” and has no inside nor outside surface, what is more you can actually fill these with fluid. Here’s how

Math teacher need: klein bottle A real Klein bottle is an object with no inside and no outside that can only exist in four dimensions. These glass models exist in three, which means that unlike the real thing, they can actually hold liquid.

A Klein bottle is a surface which has no edges, no “inside” or “outside” and cannot properly be constructed in three dimensional space. This bottle, from a series made by Alan Bennett, was constructed as accurately as possible.

::: This is one of a series of glass Klein bottles made by Alan Bennett in Bedford, United Kingdom for the Science Museum, London. It consists of three Klein bottles, one inside another.

genuine glass Klein Bottles. These are the finest closed, non-orientable, boundary-free manifolds sold anywhere in our three spatial dimensions.    These elegant bottles make splendid gifts, outstanding classroom displays, and inferior mouse-traps. With its circle of singularities, an Acme Klein Bottle can be said to exist inside of itself -- especially handy during time-reversals.
