Vortex Dome – Physicsfun




This product is hand made and ships in 1 week.

This is a beautiful focus or fidget toy designed for your desk. A vortex lives in here, just spin the gorgeous glass dome to see it.

I designed this after visiting the science museum, and wanted a Rheoscopic vortex toy of my own. I couldn’t find one, so I made my own.

This could be called a fidget toy, or a focus toy or perhaps a physics toy, or a science toy. There are many fluid toys but this really draws you in.

I am also aware that people who have Aspergers or an autistic spectrum condition can find this an excellent toy to focus the mind and relieve stress.

Please contact me with any questions. I can make this in a range of colours. Blue is shown here but I can also make green and orange too.

Thank you for looking at my item; my shop. I always appreciate likes.

Vortex Dome: kinetic art with rheoscopic fluid in a rotating base. Visualizing the invisible- the Vortex Dome is the creation of engineer/inventor (and a favorite @physicsfun featured artist) David Fowler. His modern rotating kalliroscope generates complex and beautiful structures similar to those seen in the cloud bands of the gas giants of our solar system like Jupiter. The capsule is constructed of high quality glass on a heavy stainless steel base which glides on bearings for long spin times. ➡️ Follow the link in my profile for information on where to get this device and other amazing items featured here on @physicsfun #physics #physicstoy #rheoscopic #rheoscopicfliud #fluiddynamics #turbulence #kalliroscope #vortex #angularmomentum #viscosity #kineticart #kineticenergy #vortexdome #science #scienceisawesome @physicshack
