A möbius strip is a 3-dimensional geometric figure with one side and one edge. Möbius strip is also spelled 'moebius strip'.
A möbius strip is constructed with a single strip of paper. The two ends of the strip are attached, but one is twisted 180°. If one cuts a möbius strip completely in the middle, it does not make two pieces. The möbius strip was discovered by Ferdinand Möbius (German 1790-1868) in 1858.
