Product Description

The Flextest contest made me think of springs. And as I like recursive stuff, I decided to make a spring out of a spring that's made of a spring. Three levels of springy.

The purpose of this item is to answer these fundamental questions:
- How long will it be when stretched? (my calculations say you might need something like a volleyball court to test this)
- Will it return to its original shape afterwards? Or will it turn into the phone cord from hell?

The model was made with POV-Ray (as you can see in one of the close ups, it's made of about 77000 spheres strung together). The final model in MeshLab has 750000 faces.
