A Conversation for The Amazing Mobius Strip

Are there any practical uses for a mobius strip?

Yes - I heard that rubber conveyor belt bands in mines etc are often in the mobius strip shape rather than a straightforward loop so that wear and tear is reduced (both sides are used).

That's how it was invented, some mine supervisor called Mobius.

Sorry, Moebius was a mathematician and an astronomer, not a mine
Or perhaps you were just pulling my leg. In either case...
