How to Construct a 20 Sided Pecan Pie

Modular Pie-Cosahedrone Slice

In or around 2009, UC Irvine Computer Science Professor Charless F. Fowlkes decided that he really wanted to make a memorable, tech-forward dessert for Thanksgiving. Using his expertise in 3D scene understanding, Fowlkes and a helpful team constructed an icosahedron (20 Sided) pecan pie made from 20 modular triangular pies baked in custom pans and attached together with tiny magnets.

…bringing technology to this traditional celebration of excess. Constructing a pie with the topology of a sphere from 20 triangular sub-pie modules attached with amazing magnets.
