245. Bright Idea: Hurricane Balls March 23, 2007

These toys have an incredibly simple design. But get them spinning, and then blow on them to accelerate the revolutions, and these Hurricane Balls can spin at 8-10 k rpms, for as long as 2 minutes. Though the novelty would wear off quickly (unless you came up with some sort of game), it is worth watching parts of the 2.5 minute video clip (of a 2-sphere unit, and a 4-sphere unit).
