Double pendulum really swings!


Flickr member yamamo2 and his dad built this high performance double pendulum (aka chaos machine) and dang – can this thing get down or what? Instant physics party anytime! unless of course you happen to close and catch a stray pendulum to the noggin … physics party foul, indeed :(
