Embrace chaos by making your own double pendulum fidget spinner

I don’t think Boing Boing is ever going to give up on fidget spinners.

This is how I thought they should work this whole time. The tri-lobed ones are perfectly balanced so you can’t flip them around with just one hand.


are these for sale anywhere? - a chaotic pendulum is a perfect metaphor for explaining modern politics

edit: found one - but, oof, 40 quid - stainless steel though - https://rotablade.myshopify.com/collections/products/products/copy-of-damasteel-stubby-spinner-and-cigar-stand
