Yo-yos are most definitely toys, but you could argue this CNC-machined, ball bearing-equipped yo-yo is more precision machine than plaything.
One Drop yo-yos buck the trend toward cheap offshore manufacturing—these anodized aluminum circles of joy are made in Eugene, Oregon, in a workshop whose sole purpose is the manufacture of yo-yos. That's dedication, and these guys have been hand assembling—and hand testing!—these high-rpm beauties since 2001.
The shaft spins on 10-ball cartridge bearings, and man do these things spin—listen to it whirr in the video! They're surprisingly lightweight, at 66 grams—about 2-1/3 ounces—but spin and spin in a way that puts my childhood Duncan Butterfly to shame. And is at least a thousand times more interesting than any fidget spinner. 😄
Completely ridiculous, but only in the best way. I love it when toys get the detailed engineering treatment. A good example of how science and engineering make everything better—even simple classic toys. 😎
