Surf's Up!: Another gravity defying creation by Kyle Auga @kyles_kinetics. This well-balanced stainless steel surfer will carve waves in the air for over 15 minutes on one push! The surfer has the curious motion of a 3D physical pendulum- a complex motion which can be broken down into oscillations along two dimensions and rotation about the point of contact. The stick figure plus counterweights and bar structure is designed such that its center of mass is few centimeters below the contact point when at rest. When the sculpture is tipped the center of mass swings under the pivot point in this stable equilibrium condition- no magnets needed to create this physics magic. ➡️ Follow the link in my profile for info on where to get Kyle's kinetic art and other amazing items featured here on @physicsfun #kineticart #KylesKinetics #centerofmass #lowcenterofmass #balancetoy #physicstoy #physicsart #physics #stableequilibrium #equilibrium #oscillations #physicalpendulum #pendulum #torque #restoringforce #desktoy #science #scienceisawesome #newtonssecondlaw #centerofgravity

Balance Drinking Vessel: physics meets design in this stainless steel cup- when empty the cup tilts to one side, but when full it stands straight. The walls of this spherical vessel are hollow, asymmetric, and weighted, designed with the center of mass displaced from the symmetry axis such that the empty cup rests in stable equilibrium at a 23 degree tilt. The addition of mass (pouring a drink) within the offset interior of the cup places the center of mass (cup + contents) onto the symmetry axis allowing an upright stable equilibrium. Designed by Katja Hoeltermann for Carl Mertens design of Solingen Germany. ➡️ Following the link in my profile for more info and where to buy this vessel and many other amazing items featured here on @physicsfun #physics #physicstoy #centerofmass #balance #balancetoy #CarlMertens #equilibrium #stableequilibrium #symmetry #symmetryaxis #science #scienceisawesome

The Levitron: spin stabilized magnetic levitation- will fly for about 3 minutes or more per launch. The spin rate of the magnetic top must be just right for flight, not too fast or too slow. Also the weight of the top must be adjusted to within 1 gram to achieve equilibrium between the pull of gravity and the magnetic repulsion from the large donut shaped magnet in the wood base. ➡️ Follow the link in my profile for information on where to get a Levitron and many other physics toys. #physics #physicstoy #levitron #magnet #magneticfield #magnetism #Earnshawstheorem #equilibrium #gravity #angularmomentum #precession #amazing #science #levitation #maglev #scienceisawesome #stableequilibrium #neodymium #neodymiummagnet

Teslas newest feature "Autopilot"--a semi-autonomous driving feature that includes speed-adjusting, lane-switching, and automatic braking--has become the basis for the race towards autonomous driving. Not only is the feature already included in the next Model 3, but this new feature has inspired other car makers all over the world to start coming up with new solutions towards efficient driving machines. What do you think about this autopilot feature? GOOD or BAD? Comment down below 👇🏻

#Repost with @Repostlyapp Balance Pteranodon: weights in the forward wing tips create a center of mass below this pterosaur's beak- making a system that can rotate and oscillate about a stable equilibrium condition. No magnets used or needed for this physics! Usually this toy is found in the form of a bird (direct dinosaur descendent). Pterosaurs are not dinosaurs, but are the largest animals to ever fly, and powered flight has only evolved four times: bats, birds, pterosaurs, and insects- in reverse order. ➡️ Follow the link in my profile to get this toy pteranodon and other amazing items featured here on @physicsfun #equilibrium #centerofmass #physics #physicstoy #balance #balancebird #balancetoy #pteranodon #pterosaur #rotationalinertia #science #scienceisawesome #stableequilibrium

"Balance of Power": Star Wars kinetic balance sculpture features an X-Wing targeting a TIE fighter in this display from the 1997 re-release of the original trilogy. The center of mass of the two ship structure is designed to be under the balance point providing stability for rotation and oscillations. ➡ Follow the link in my profile for info on where to get this and other amazing items featured here on @physicsfun #physics #physicstoy #kineticart #balance #balanceart #centerofmass #stableequilibrium #StarWars #1997 #kineticsculpture #vintage #scifi #science #scienceisawesome
