Interesting, the Torofluxus looks like a fun thing to make – if anyone has details on how it’s constructed, post up in the comments…

The Torofluxus was invented in the early 1990s by Jochen Valett, then a 70 year old artist and craftsman near Hamburg, Germany. A thirty foot long ribbon of fine “flat spring steel” is woven into a torus and the ends spot welded. When attached to a plastic core, it flows downwards gripping onto the core and shimmering like a silver bubble.
