Product Description

Embark on a thrilling journey into the world of chaos! Learn all about chaos, the chaos theory, and the butterfly effect. Then, get hands-on and build pendulums that move in complete, continuous chaos! It's totally CHAOTIC!
Embark on a thrilling journey into the world of chaos!

Chaos Theory is a science simultaneously intriguing, amazing, mind-blowing, and, as some might say, fantastically scary.

At first it seems too complex; too strange; too unbelievable - But the moment you open up this building kit, suddenly everything seems to fall into place and swing into action!

Start by learning all about what chaos is, how it works, and what the whole "theory" is all about.

Discover the difference between controlled and chaotic situations. Learn all about the Butterfly Effect, where when a butterfly flaps its wings in Peru, the next day there's rain in Central Park.

Even learn about chaos in mathematical terms with complex equations translated into terms even young kids can understand.

Then, it's time to start building some chaos of your own!

Detailed and enlightening instructions take you on a wild trip from the completely predictable to the utterly chaotic.

Learn how the pendulums work as you build the single, double, and triple pendulums - Plastic bars attached with nuts, bolts, and spacers swing fast with smooth bearings while hanging from a magnetic base.

Already you're starting to get the swing of things!

Construct "The Ketch," your very first chaos machine, and watch as it goes on and on, moving totally unpredictably.

Build the "Rott Pendulum" to see what a fixed angle does to the movement, get even more chaotic with the "Drongo," and even more chaotic yet with the "Dancing Danny."

Then, just when you thought you've seen it all, your own creativity suddenly takes off exploring and experimenting to build even MORE chaotic machines!

Just like the ever-changing weather, the chaotic pendulum fun never stops!

Chaos is always around us, all hours, minutes, and seconds of every day. Get hands-on, swing into action, and discover the theory of the world around you with the Chaos Machine kit.

      Complicated

      This was a Christmas gift I gave this to my 10 year old grandson who is hugely into sports, hoping to open his mind to more science, creativity, physics. It was I and his stepdad that took it out of the box and put it together. My grandson wasn't all that interested..........but, it was Christmas day. He had numerous other gifts to look at, one of which took most of his attention. I am hoping that we get another chance soon to build one of the machines.

      Fun Toy

      I picked up this toy for my husband and he loves it. We haven't gone through all of the designs yet, but have tried a few different of our own configurations.
