Helicone

Helicone by John Edmark

Inspired by nature, based on the Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Angle, the Helicone not only represents beautiful botanical structures but also provides stunning transformations before your very eyes. Watch it magically transform between a helix and a pine cone with a simple, quick twist.

Lollipopter

Lollipopter by John Edmark

With a quick twist, Lollipopter magically transforms from a “swirl” to a “burst” and back again in one amazingly elegant motion. To transform it, simply spin the handle and watch the magic unfold. To change it back, just spin it the other way. Intuitive, relaxing, fun…and addictive

Blooms

Blooms are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. Unlike a 3D zoetrope, which animates a sequence of small changes to objects, a bloom animates as a single self-contained sculpture. Here you will find a selection of my bloom sculptures available to buy and print for your personal use and enjoyment.

Wheel Walker

Give the Wheel Walker a gentle nudge and watch it smoothly “walk” across any flat surface – seeming to defy the laws of physics! When you’re done taking it for a walk, just place it on its side to keep it from walking away. Wheel Walkers can also be stacked one on top of the other.

Hypercycles Drawing Tool

Hypercycles Geometric Drawing Tool is based on the Spirograph toy. HyperCycles is essentially a Spirograph inside a Spirograph. This configuration results in an additional periodicity, which allows for the creation of more complex curves, and less regular drawings.
