Galileo's Pendulum

Watch amazing patterns appear when you set Galileo's Pendulum swinging


Everyone has heard of Newton and his swinging balls (the ones in his cradle, get your mind out of the gutter), but few have been amazed by Galileo's magnificent physical tricks, until now. Use the included long bar to set all of the 15 balls swinging at the exact same time (it's easier than it sounds). Each one is hung on a different length of string in descending order, meaning that they swing at different rates and create a fascinating variety of mesmerising patterns as they do so. Yet another fantastic example of having fun with physics, which makes this a perfect executive desk top toy or an addictive centrepiece to a den.
