[iprpjqdt] Perspective checkerboard

An infinite checkerboard drawn with one- or two-point perspective can display an infinite number of squares, assuming possible drawing infinitely fine detail, which can be done on a computer by providing zoom.

Somewhat resembles models of hyperbolic space, e.g., Poincare half-plane model.  Infinity is on the horizon.

Play games on an infinite checkerboard, maybe Conway's Game of Life.
