Tail Spin

Tail Spin started out as Oskar’s Geared Whiplash (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-JSWtu1oMU). It is a Yo-Yo-type gearing contraption with no obvious use other than tactile amusement. It is a snake of gears, in which each segment drives the next segment. The shape can be curled up quite compactly. It gradually unrolls and when it is nearly fully unrolled, it sweeps around like the end of a whip, hence the name "Geared Whiplash". After the whipping, the contraption rolls up again and the sequence repeats. Thinkfun describes it as follows: Tail Spin is a delightfully fun toy perfect for mindful fidgeting. Simply flick your wrist and be dazzled by the intertwining gears. You have to see it to believe it! https://www.thinkfun.com/products/tail-spin/

Fidgitz

Fidgitz is a puzzle by Bram Cohen and Oskar van Deventer, originally known as Bram’s Magic. Bram came up with the puzzle concept, Oskar developed the mechanism, and after several iterations it became a wonderful puzzle. The goal of the puzzle is to fold and turn it to scramble the puzzle, and then try to solve it.
