Skew Dice
New
Out stock

These wacky-looking dice are actually just as fair as regular dice. Unlike other dice, Skew Dice aren't mirror symmetric. This means they come in two distinct forms that are mirror images of one another. Skew Dice are based on the trigonal trapezohedron....

Water Beads
New
Out stock

These tiny beads are made of a super absorbent polymer that can soak up a surprising amount of water. Plus, since they are almost entirely water when full absorbed, they have the same refraction index as water and become invisible...

Tippe Top (Wood)
New
Out stock

This spinning top has a surprising behavior. When spun, it will invert itself to spin upside down until it loses momentum. This interesting gyroscopic effect is generally credited to surface friction. This small friction causes a torque which gradually rotates the...

Solids of Constant Width (Set of 3)
New
Out stock

These solids of constant width behave like spheres. This is because, regardless of the peculiar shape, the diameter is still equal at every point. You can demonstrate this property by setting a flat object, like a book, on them and it will...

Liquid-Filled Top
New
Out stock

We don't usually carry religious paraphernalia, but we had to make an exception for these liquid-filled glass dreidels. When spun, the colored water in the internal cavity exhibits interesting physics to keep the top spinning. Includes stand.Dimensions: 3" tall x...

Retroreflective Glass Beads
New
Out stock

These microbeads are retroreflective beads—tiny glass spheres designed to effectively reflect light back to the light source. They are commonly applied to wet paint to create reflective surfaces and markings. They work by allowing light to pass into one side of the...
