Watch A Yo-Yo Without A String Attached Defy Physics (And Then Learn The Actual Physics Behind It)

Veritasium is far and away my favorite YouTube channel on the entire internet. Derek Muller’s videos take some of the most complicated science … stuff (see how educated I am) and make it possible for even the most rock headed Bros to comprehend.

And he blows your mind in the process (like this video on the Magnus Effect).

In his most recent effort, he met with world famous yo-yoer Ben Conde, to show how he could use a yo-yo that didn’t have a string tied to it.

How does it manage to defy physics like that? Well, the answer is actually physics.

Damn, physics. You a woman of many talents.
