This is a cardboard wheel with an internal winding mechanism.  Roll the wheel--release, and it will return toward its original position.

Step 1: Materials and How it Works

This requires cardboard, glue, two fishing weights (3 ounce), rubber bands and a paperclip.

The weights allow the rubber band to twist, and the twist in the rubber band rolls the wheel.

u can do this with a coffe can :D
This is really cool! Fun toy to play with!
Thank you! It's a fun concept.
