Let’s check out some of these kinetic desk toys, right?. Yes.
There is some really awesome stuff for sale through the links on this list. Like a little catapult, a few really awesome kinetic desk toys, and more..
You know…Just click to learn more, read reviews, or buy each item. Alright, cool. Let’s get down to business and try to stay in motion.
“Things standing shall fall, but the moving ever shall stay”. ~Basavanna
That’s a quote that can relate to a lot of things, you know, like wind, water, or staying moving when you are in danger, as well as it’s most obvious meaning: That things standing shall fall, basically. And that things that move are way better, right? 🙂
Perpetual motion machines are cool, because they never stop. Is there any such thing? Well, not really on Earth..
The closest thing we have come up with are pendulums. Like the Foucault pendulum at Clemson University…
You know, motion in the universe will probably never cease, at least for a really long time, well, relatively…
Well at least I hope so, and maybe the human race will be a part of it later on, too, after Earth is destroyed and stops moving. Maybe we can make it to other systems, like I talk about in the galaxy posters article.
That is why these kinetic motion desk sculptures are so cool:
Because once in motion, they tend to stay in motion. And that’s part of the awesomeness of these little contraptions.
These little sculpture looking things are fun to observe and watch, though. However, many of them require batteries, but not all of the ones in this list do.
So, I guess these are sorta like temporary motion kinetic sculptures, or something..
Anyways, have fun, and check out our top choices..
Let’s get started…
