worlds largest yoyo World's largest handheld yo yo

Our resident yo-yo expert and MAKE engineering intern Eric Chu showed me this video of what claims to be the world’s largest handheld yo-yo, fashioned out of two dog pools and some hardware, by none other than Dr. Yo-Yo. The challenge was finding a place to actually film the throw. What better location than the top level of the National Yo-Yo Museum’s parking garage in Chico, Calif.

Update:

Dr. Yo-Yo is at it again! He went back to the drawing board, reduced the gap, increased the weight, and came up with much more successful results. High five, Doctor!

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
