Product details

Science Museum Impossible Balancer

• An amazing, gravity defying, balancing challenge
• Spins and then flips to spin on its stalk
• Sound changes as it flips onto its end

What is the Impossible Balancer?
The Impossible Balancer is precision machined from one solid block of aluminium. It is highly polished and long spinning. This simple top has baffled physicists for years. It won’t stand on its stem, but will flip over onto it once spinning.

How does the Impossible Balancer work?
Pick the Impossible Balancer up by its stalk and spin it with your thumb and fingers. It will start tipping from side to side, until it eventually reaches a point where it flips over the other way up, and starts spinning on its stalk. When used on a very polished surface – like a mirror – it will spin for minutes on end. Make sure you listen out for the change in sound as it flips from one end to the other.
