Make A Perpetual Spinner!

Using a few simple items and a little science, create a perpetual spinner. Fun for kids!
I like it very much... Great ! <br>Nice job
Does this work with CFL bulbs or LED?&nbsp; I'm going 'Green', and don't use those wasteful incandescent bulbs anymore.&nbsp; Actually, I just got tired of changing them kind of frequently.&nbsp; Pretty cool, but should address a few safety issues, that might not make this such a nice kids toy.&nbsp; Paper and a hot light bulb, can be a little unfortunate, and some adhesive on tape sort of melts/degrades with temperature.&nbsp; True, most people use low wattage bulbs in table lamps, some people use whatever they have handy when they burn out.&nbsp; And of course more heat, makes it spin faster, kids are smart, to a point... <br />
you make some good points here, however the heat is a byproduct of incandescent bulbs, a proof of their inefficiency. CFLs might got hot, but i imagine less, and i don't think an LED&nbsp;has ever gotten considerably hot on me.<br /> <br /> You could always sit this on top of another source of heat, not necessarily a lamp. for instance, the hanging over the heater that sits along the wall, or over the coffee machine or something.<br /> <br /> and as for materials, maybe you could use plastic?&nbsp;you would need to stretch it into shape after cutting it since gravity wouldn't be enough, but it could be pretty cool, what with being translucent.<br />
Since you need the rising air current to do this, you can't use a LED. You kind of answered your own question.<br /> <br /> <br /> I always love these things, I put them on my central heating.<br />
