We love this video from Dell telling the story of making a toy with Green Toys. A Fat Brain Favorite, Green Toys uses recycled milk containers as the main ingredient in all toys. Yep, the plastic milk jugs that you and your family drink from every day, (though you’d never guess that by looking!)

Earth-friendly Green Toys contain no Phthalates or BPA. They are safe. They’re chunky. They’re colorful… just begging to be played with. Make sure to tell us about your favorite Green Toy and check out all of our the Green Toys available at Fat Brain Toys.

Amazing Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures Posted Monday, January 19, 2015

TOPICS | Video

These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.

For this video, rather than using a strobe, the camera was set to a very short shutter speed (1/4000 sec) in order to freeze the spinning sculpture.

John Edmark is an inventor/designer/artist. He teaches design at Stanford University.
