Maxwell’s Dynamical Top: another demonstration of the strange properties of rotating bodies created by the great physicist James Clerk Maxwell. When this massive brass bell-shaped top is spinning an interesting stability can occur- push on the stem with an object (like a pencil) and the top will push back, forcing the stem against that object, and friction will cause the stem to roll along and trace the edge of the object. In this design the stem will trace along the edge of a metal spiral, clinging to it like a magnet- but magnets are NOT involved here. The key to this design is to make the contact point/tip of the top at its own center of mass, then any frictional force in contact with the stem will produce a torque about the contact point at right angle to the direction of friction that creates the stabilizing force (students of physics may recognize application of the right hand rule here). An extreme physics toy! ➡️ Follow the link in my profile for info on where to get most of the amazing items featured here on @physicsfun#angularmomentum#rotation#torque#vector#vectoraddition#precession#physics#physicstoy#MaxwellsTop#dynamical#spiral#friction#rollingwithoutslipping#spinningtop#science#gyroscope#gyroscopic#scienceisawesome
3D printed storage container . What would you use this for? . . Love this Filament from @3dprintz_ltd . This is a remix of Emmetts iris box design - if you have a 3D printer check out Emmett’s designs on Thingiverse he has some awesome complex designs!

Thanks for the fidget spinner!! Some sweet people from jwraps brought this to me at the meet and greet in Fayetteville. Lovin' how it demonstrates the physics of circular motion and inertia :) TONIGHT, BRAIN CANDY LIVE IS IN BALTIMORE. SEE YOU THERE!!! #fidgetspinner#fidget#gyroscope#physics
JOUER LTD. and Nebula Series in #interbee exhibition in Tokyo！
Nebula 5300 is a 5-axis gimbal whose payload is up to 4kg，it's designed for cameras such as Sony FS5，Z150，Panasonic DVX200 and so on. This time we put a wooden camera on it and let's take a look at the performance.
