Hyperbolic geometry differs greatly from what we are used to in that the longest path between two points is a straight line. You can think of hyperbolic space like Euclidean space, but with a different way of defining the distance between two points (we call this a metric). Above is the hyperbolic equivalent of an icosidodecahedron. Check out more hyperbolic tilings here.
