Looking for a really unique gift for your boss or CEO? How about the Swinging Sticks Kinetic Energy Sculpture as seen in the movie “Iron Man 2“?
The Swinging Sticks In Iron Man 2
The “Swinging Sticks” were featured in a scene from the film Iron Man 2 where Tony Stark (Robert Downy Jr.) sneaks into Stark Industries to steal his father’s Stark Expo plans. During a conversation with Pepper Potts, the Swinging Sticks desk sculpture annoys Tony Stark so much that he can’t stop touching them and even tries to wedge other desk items into the sculpture to stop it from moving.
How Do They Work?
The Swinging Sticks are actually a double pendulum constructed of aluminum arms. The circling motion of the arms appears to defy the laws of gravity as they glide through the air in constant motion. Hypnotic. Unusual. Fascinating. They definitely make a statement as the ultimate executive desk toy. They also make a great conversation piece.
- Aluminum sticks on a solid wood base reach a maximum height of 18″ (base measures 10.5″ w x 3.25″ h)
- Sculpture requires a 16″-wide clearance for sticks to swing
- Uses 4 AA batteries (included)
An Awesome Boss Gift
They make a great “boss gift” for someone at your company like the CEO. Just think, everyone who walks into your boss’ office will see it and ask your boss about it. Your name is sure to come up a few times a week at least.
