Constructed from a single strand of thin, flexible metal, the Flow Ring is both a kinetic sculpture and a mesmerizing flow toy. With one look, you’ll see why it has been called a ‘4th dimensional Slinky.’ Folds flat and pops open into a beautiful 3D geometrical shape. Slip it on your arm or a rope and watch its translational energy change to rotational energy! Centripetal forces cause the ring to expand as it spins faster. The result is remarkable: the Flow Ring begins spinning while simultaneously falling, creating the illusion of a silver bubble. The secret is in how the metal is wrapped–the ribbon coils through itself, forming a torus knot.
