Thread: made a fun gadjet to play with :)

  1. #1

    Default made a fun gadjet to play with :)

    what's up
    i saw many of those fidget spinners and tried to make one, without much knowledge.
    this is my first attempt XD



    spin test video:

    well, it failed miserably, although it looks quite cool

    then i made another spinner and this time it spun for over 7 minutes.



    not bad!

    maybe if i want to improve further, i have to seriously consider aerodynamics!

    It's a direction, based on traditional nomenclature.

    What's with the giddy-up on your face? Did you smash all of your teeth out when it failed?

    Nice work and welcome. Don't let the peanut gallery here get you down. I think Doozers idea of the pinnacle of culture was the 'pet rock'.

    Better the kids fidget than eat Tide pods, drive blindfolded, etc.

    Agreed.. Very nice work. It looks very well balanced too. The giddy-up on your face is way too distracting though so it's hard to get past that....

    when you said giddy-up, you are refering to the mask?
