Hi everybody,

Today I received my final copy of "Gyro the Cube" :

index.php?t=getfile&id=951&private=0

The hinges have been improved and the overall design is more robust.
Everything fits easily and snug together.
See it in action :

Also the pair of Eardrops have arrived :

index.php?t=getfile&id=952&private=0

They look wonderful !

For those who have been waiting, thank you for your patience, both objects are now available :

Hi,

I've asked Joris to check them, but got no response yet.

Do you prefer a single one, instead of the pair ?
And is the current size right for you ?

I was thinking of making a slightly bigger one, to be used as a necklace pendant. As I don't know, if the details and hole would come out ok in stainless at the current size.

Just let me know !

Stijn

This is a great piece. The video is impressive!

How is it moving? Are you blowing on it? Or are you pushing with a finger that we can't see?

I agree, that is amazing. Uh oh he's got my mind turning. I better turn away before I have to make something wind driven.

Thanks guys, oh and yes, I'm just blowing air at it Wink
I'm still working on a matching stand with a built in fan.
Hopefully I can tune it to get the cube to twist and turn slowly on it's own.

@Youknowwho4eva : Haha, just go nuts ! It's a whole new white strong and flexible world out here Wink
