Euler’s disk is a very interesting scientific educational toy.
When it’s spun, it rotates and spins nearly like a coin when spun but spins for longer time and makes interesting sounds. It consists of a heavy round object with a flat surface.
Today I’ve decided to make my own Euler’s disk.
Although it’s not like the ready made one you can buy that comes with shiny mirroring surface.
But it spins for some time and is good for me since it only took me five minutes to assemble.
I made two versions.
