It’s always been about the physics.
I used to play with Yo-Yo’s when I was a kid, like a lot kids. Sitting in my chair here at home I have one within arms reach right now.
I was never particular good with one only being able to do basic throws, sleeping, walking the dog and around the world. That was about it. I certainly would have liked to have been able to do more and I practiced a lot when I was a kid, but I never got any further then that.
That guy on the plate? He’s from Ancient Greece, about 500 BCE and he’s playing with a Yo-Yo. So they’ve been around for a long time. But I haven’t had nearly that much time to practice.
But I think maybe, just maybe, if I had the advantage of a zero gravity environment I might be able to do some pretty cool stuff.
Certainly this guy is doing some cool stuff.
