What You Get

Giant Rainbow Plastic Slinky 10cm diameter. Includes one classic plastic rainbow-coloured slinky.

How Does it Work?

The spring appears to walk down stairs by transferring energy along its length via longitudinal waves. The spring follows itself over and results in periodic motion until it reaches the bottom of the stairs.

The spring appears to levitate when drop vertically towards the ground. This is because the change in tension on the spring must propagate to the base of the spring from the top. A lag time of approximate 0.3 seconds creates the impression that the spring is levitating before both ends begin to fall to the ground.
