Hi all,

I received my scoubidou.
The structure is basically the same as an actual scoubidou except the cleareance between the 2 mm wires that is 1 mm in all directions. So it is quite loose, which make it very flexible.
See the pictures below and the video here.
index.php?t=getfile&id=4640&private=0

It is quite unexpensive of an object of this dimension (less than $25).

Do you think I should do other dimensions or shapes?
Thanks,

Magic

Ahaha! Laughing I am also wondering (but not all objects need to be useful, do they?).

As I say in the video, just use it as a regular scoubidou! Original scoubidous were used as keyring (this one is probably too big) or to recognize your luggages.
See this website for inspiration (see "scoubidou projects").

For me it is also a way to test the elasticity of Strong and Flexible: the same pattern can be used to make a kind of fabric, if you interlocked the basic pattern so that the section is nearly flat (instead of squared).

For use as bracelet/necklace It would be great if it could be connected
end do beginning, in such a way that there's no kink at the connection.

Another idea for a "useful" application:
Add a LED-light to the top ** and a handle to the bottom
Then you can draw lines of light into the nigth.
** maybe two lights on a lateral bar instead to make use of the torsion elasticity too. In any case add an approriate mass.

Right!!! I got it now.

In that case I really like it!!! I'm thinking a shorter one with a place to inset a luggage tag.

VERY HANDY!!!!

Hi,

Thank you all for your suggestions. I will think now about the next steps.
In the meantime, I wanted to show you my collection of Scoubidous:
index.php?t=getfile&id=4652&private=0
Click to enlarge.

And also this ball-shaped one, that inspired me for my IcosidodecaLink:
index.php?t=getfile&id=4654&private=0
Note that each loop is closed by a nearly seamless join (see the close-up) as suggested by Lukas.

Us Americans get confused, because to us "Scoubidou" is a popular TV show. My kids are always making them, though, and they call them "Lanyards".

Very nice idea, whatever you call them!

We call them GIMPs here.

Interestingly, ScoobyDoo, the dog, was named after the craft of scoubidou.

Hmm, Whystler,
I prefer the Wikipedia Soul Music inspiration take on the naming of Scooby Doo...

"Silverman was inspired by a combination of the "scoo-be-doo" section in Sly and the Family Stone's "Everyday People" and Frank Sinatra's scat "doo-be-doo-be-doo" he heard at the end of Bert Kaempfert's song "Strangers in the Night" on the way out to one of their meetings, and decided to rename the dog "Scooby-Doo"

But let's never let the truth get in the way of a good story..

I thought Lanyard was specifically a key chain piece. In the scouts we called it Gimp. And his name is scoodydoo because that is all he can say other than Wuh Woh Waggy and Heeehehehehehe

Lol, well your source is the same as mine, just a different page:

"The name scoubidou came from the late French singer Sacha Distel, who scored his first hit with the song of the same name in 1958 and became the Francized name for the long-running cartoon series Scooby-Doo."

But I'm Canadian, so I speak french too Wink
