Airzooka Air Cannon

Airzooka Air Cannon
The amazing Airzooka will blow you away! Blast a harmless vortex of air up to 6 meters towards any object or person. Then have a good giggle after you mess up a person's hair, ruffle their shirt, dress or papers unnoticed from a distance.

This balancing bird demonstrates the science of gravity and weight distribution in a way that captivates.

The bird’s centre of gravity — also called the centre of mass — is located at the tip of its beak. This is the point at which the mass of the body is perfectly balanced. Just as you can hold a pencil using one finger if you find its centre of gravity, so the balancing bird will balance on its beak. Try balancing this intruiging bird on almost anything you can think of: a tip of a pen, a finger, a phone.  Give it a spin and watch in amazement as it still stays balanced. 

The balancing bird offers an engaging way to teach the scientific concepts of gravity, weight distribution and balance.

What You Get

Multi-coloured balancing bird. Wing span approimately 15 cm. 

How does it work?
Logic and experience tells you that the bird will only balance somewhere around his middle, but impossibly he balances on the very tip of his beak. The explanation lies in the weights located in the tips of the bird's wings keeping the center of gravity below its beak (support point). Try spinning him as fast as possible, he will stay balanced until centripetal forces eventually win over and the he goes flying off his support point across the room!
