What is the volume of a generalized Klein bottle, say using characterizing dimensions such as greatest length l, width w, intersection area a?

The Klein bottle is a 4-D object!  The physical ones you can see are just projections of the 4-D version in 3-D.

A Klein bottle has no interior and no exterior so it has zero volume!

I've never heard of a Klein Bottle before.

There're weird!  Sort of a 3 dimensional version of a mobius strip? 

There are instructuions in this wikipaedia page on how to make one!  Does someone want to give it a go?

You could upload a photo of your creation to show us!
