I was looking at it wondering "what's so interesting about a bunch of marbles?" but that was so cool... If only I could find my brothers' old marbles...

Hmm...I bet if you made a whole bunch of these, you could have a lot of fun building towers of these blocks. It'd be tricky due to the shape, but there's the challenge. Of course, even as a top this is pretty awesome! Perfect for my desk at work...as if I didn't have enough toys already. Still, I think I will find some brass balls and make this with those, so when I'm not using them I can stack them by my Captain Barbosa action figure, and they'll look like treasure.

Bottom Line:

5 bucks + 5 minutes = fun for kids of all ages!

Great Instructable!

i've got something similar, but it doesn't do the flippy thing

if you use an air compressor blow gun or just blow on it with a straw while its spinning you can accelerate it pretty fast.

When I looked at the picture I thought to myself "Wow. How amazing." But that actually is pretty cool for being so simple.

for what it is, just 4 marbles and a drop of glue, this is pretty neat, good instructable, doesn't need quite so many steps, but who gives a damn

author
cry_wolf (author)2007-12-15

Haha, i have those exact same marbles that i bought from the dollar store. Looks like fun and is extremely simple. Using a glue that involves mixing compounds for a reaction works best s it is insanely powerful.
