the Toroflux! I saw it at a juggling convention last year, and had to get one. It is my favorite desk toy. When still, it appears to be a small set of wire rings. Pick it up, and it snaps into a sort of strange torus. Put it on your arm and it flows around your body like something from the future. I hope it wins awards – it certainly deserves them! When this book talks about surrounding yourself with things that create a spark of joy when you hold them, the Toroflux definitely fits the bill. I also can’t help but see the connection between the construction of the Toroflux and the way 8-Track Tapes work. I also keep thinking this is just the beginning – that much more could be done with this simple idea.
