This smaller version of the original Swinging Sticks desktop toy lets you enjoy the same calming, yet gravity-defying display of physics in almost any setting. Swinging, flowing, noiselessly circling in perpetual motion, these slender steel-grey sticks seem to swing in spite of natural laws. The magnets in the sticks allow them to circle fluidly and create a relaxing and almost hypnotic effect by way of a chaos motion. The aluminum arms will upset expectations as they change directions and adjust their speed by slowing or accelerating, seemingly for no apparent reason. To the eye, the design is sleek, beautiful, an deceptively simple. The Swinging Sticks desktop toy will provide relaxing entertainment and be the center of attention no matter where; makes an excellent executive gift for the office, either at work or home.
NOTE: Requires 4 AA batteries
