Tomography game

I would like to announce an educational math game, the tomography

In this game, the user has to identify an object which is partially
invisible: only the intersection of the object with plane is shown.
The height of this plane can be changed using a slider control.
Therefore, this tool simulates a computerized tomography scanner: a
funny way to study cross sections of some mathematical 3D objects.

Suggestions are welcome!

Best regards, Humberto.
