Euler’s Disk exhibits and amplifies the dynamic system of a spinning disk. It is the same physics as a coin spun on a table, but the disk utilizes an optimized aspect ratio to maximize spinning time. This video demonstrates the disk in use, notice the change in rotational frequency as the disk gets closer and closer to a horizontal spin.
