Normally, drummers play on solid ground. But the Westfield High School Band has a gyroscopic rig that lets a percussionist perform while spinning on three axes. EMC Productions got up close with this dizzying thrill ride for drummers and took it for a spin. We’re impressed that he didn’t lose his lunch while playing.
Engineer BrunS is an expert at metalcraft. In this clip, he machines an impressive, smooth-spinning, 3-axis gyroscope toy that looks a bit like a flying saucer. Along the way, he fabricates a couple of simpler spinning tops to tease us, while his buddies pimp a phone for their sponsor.
