We get so many wonderful things sent to our office, but sometimes a gadget arrives and we just can't
stop playing with it. Unsurprisingly, the Fun Fly Stick was one of the toys that wowed us. It's a very simple concept - one stick, 3 Mylar shapes, the stick makes the shapes float - but when it's put into action it looks amazing. Now, make sure you're sitting comfortably, because here comes the science.
The Fun Fly Stick levitates a choice of five magic shapes by means of an inbuilt Van der Graaff generator (remember physics class? Check the internet, you'll remember what it is). The wand generates an electrostatic charge when you hold down the button, so that when the shiny mylar shapes touch the Fun Fly Stick they too become charged and are then repelled (because opposites attract, and likes repel. . . is none of this ringing any bells? See us after class.) What this all means in terms of fun is that you can keep the shapes floating for as long as you want!
It takes a bit of practice, but after you get the hang of it you'll be wielding it like a certain bespectacled schoolboy with a lightning shaped scar. You can even charge different parts of your body and have the floating shapes bouncing back and forth between your hand and the stick like a Wimbledon final.
The Fun Fly Stick comes with 5 Mylar shapes with one butterfly design, one hour glass design and 3 spheres so you can practice your technique without worrying too much about losing one of them.
If you've ever fancied yourself a bit of a wizard, or you're just a big science geek like us, the Fun Fly Stick will keep you entertained for hours.
