Congratulations to infinity and beyond!
You have created a perfectly symmetrical infinity symbol.

You are making progress but a perfectly symmetrical infinity symbol is required.


Use the sliders above to change the shape of the Lissajous curve. Investigate how each slider affects the pattern created. Your mission is the find the settings that produce a perfectly symmetrical (vertically and horizontally) infinity symbol.


For those with a knowledge of trigonometry the parametric equations of the curve currently showing at the top of this page are:

The solutions are available when you are signed in. If you do not yet have an account you can apply for one here.

Lissajous figures were sometimes displayed on oscilloscopes meant to simulate high-tech equipment in science-fiction TV shows and movies in the 1960s and 1970s.
