Polygons: a very different point of view

Hi. For some reason I stumbled about "geometric algebra" and a video of mathologer: and later I found this interactive document:

Wouldn't this be a nice application for the P2 to implement? Isn't more the surprising, you can generate any polygon just by adding objects from a set of "eigenpolygons"?

This would give an elementary insight into the idea, that the components of a vector are not just "numbers", but can something completely "different", and still the math is the same?

I event can imagine to have this integrates into MINT, as the example of the "1-motor Robot" could allow to control the path of a turtle robot, showcasing, the trajectory is just the sum of sinusoids..
