Accused of being fake, witchcraft and simply impossible..
This kinetic sculpture is inspired by the unlimited freedom of 3d printing,
it wobbles and turns with a slight movement of the hand.
Give it a good spin and it moves in erratic and wild ways.

Corner stand for this model is here: Corner stand for 10cm Gyro the Cube

This is the 10cm / 4" version, see the Gyro the Forms section for other shapes and sizes.

Instructions
It is composed of four concentric cubes, each one spinning around a different axis.
The model needs some minor assembly:
Each inner cube has two knobs which need to be placed into the corresponding clamps in the parent cube. It's easiest to start with the inner most and continue outward.
And then... spin it away !

Notes
Be careful with a cube this size, fingers may get pinched if handeled carelesly.
It is not a toy for children!

I'd love to! Often pondered it, but unfortunately the price would kill the fun in that :-)
