We’re all guilty of performing stupid stunts as kids, but most of us tend to avoid risking life and limb as we grow older. YouTube’s Giaco Whatever has done just the opposite. Using his machining skills, he attached a bunch of razor blades to a high performance yo-yo, creating a toy that’s possibly even more dangerous…
Last week, the 2017 World Yo-Yo Championship was held in Reykjavík, Iceland. And as in years past, watching these performers, including world champion Shu Takada, can only lead you to a single conclusion: these competitors were probably born with yo-yos attached to their arms.
Would you like to see the world's largest wooden yo-yo attempt a trick in the desert? Of course you would! Six feet in diameter, made from the boards of an old deck and big and heavy enough to require a crane. Yep, that'll do the trick.
Diameter: 35 inches. Width: 18 inches. Weight: 5.4 pounds. Components: two doggie pools and a dream. Soundtrack: 8bit MGMT cover. Everything's in place for the perfect world's-biggest-yo-yo demonstration. But can it walk the dog?
Find out about the interplay of forces that make a yo-yo bounce.
