Mathematician's Dice

This Kickstarter project proved wildly popular.

Wrote creator Matt Chisholm: "The Mathematician's Dice are dice designed for mathematicians. Rather than the relatively boring numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, these dice are jam-packed with the six most important numbers in mathematics. They have: the imaginary number i; the additive identity 0, the multiplicative identity 1, the golden ratio φ (1.618...); Euler's number e (2.718...); and the circular constant π (3.141...)."

"I had a few test dice manufactured, and they look great. They are real, standard-sized acrylic dice with symbols engraved in black. And yes, they are balanced."

Chisholm priced them at $5 apiece and raised nearly nine times the $2,000 he needed to get his project off the ground.

Nicely done.
