Holy Viral Video – The "Worlds Largest Handheld Yo-Yo" is getting some attention!


This is pretty cool, I was woken up to my iPhone vibrating off the end table this morning because all the emails I was getting.  Makeazine picked up my video of the latest yo-yo experiment and boom, now its EVERYWHERE.  Gizmodo, Makazine, Laughing Squid, ect.  I was even contacted by a major primetime network tv show about doing it live on the air if I can polish the design a bit.

We are working on it.  Current plan is to redesign the axle and add some weight.  I hope to have it done this weekend.

Thank you all for being my inspiration in this.  It is very cool that things are going the way they are going.  It was just supposed to be a small fun video but now it is getting some pretty cool attention.

    I think you should go outside and run in the sprinklers and play with a puppy.

    congrats! It’s a neat little project that shows the fun of yo-yo and will help get the sport some more exposure. Waiting for the shoot the moon video.
