RATTLEBACKS / ANAGYRES

No matter how hard you try, a rattleback will never let itself be led astray from its path. In fact, this mysterious spinning top turns in a single direction only.

A Rattleback is a semi-ellipsoidal object that can be made to spin on its back, but only in one direction due to a slight inbuilt asymmetry of the object. This toy has been around for hundreds if not thousands of years in different cultures, and under different names, like a "celt". The theoretical investigation into the details of the mechanism is ongoing. The wooden rattleback in this video was created by woodworker Emmanuel Peluchon.
