Deep Juggling by Sebas - Diacopter and Diabolo Bazooka
« on: December 20, 2005, 09:19:56 PM »
i stumbled onto this website purely by coincedence, a japanese chap named hideki sumita - turns out his website has some very odd and extremely creative tricks with all forms of juggling (check out some of the crazy moves he does in the cigar box section "what happen?").

anyway, the one that really caught my eye in terms of ingenuity was this video, i hope he doesn't mind me direct linking!

http://www2s.biglobe.ne.jp/~sebas/sebas_di19.mpg

it's the diacopter! - half diabolo, half helicopter. which he then manages to land on his head... and then do some kind of victory dance to celebrate! a highly interesting and bizarre theory, i like how when you speed it up, it turns counter clockwise. you could do some great excaliburs with this, where the diabolo actually takes off...

To me that diabcopter was strange I couldn't realy understand the point of it, originaly I thought the idea was to stick it into excalibur and it would hover.Thanks for sharing though.

The diacopter appears to an interesting take on the one sided diabolo...

EDIT: I just watched "Diabolo bazooka". It's an clever contraption he has devised to help him do 2 and 3d... it launches diabolos in to the shuffle! Worth watching, though it doesn't appear to work too well  :D

Hey, cool. Someone made a wind diabolo. I had some ideas on one of these earlier. Mine will seem to have more balance than his though.

Man, this guy's awesome! Do other people do rope devil stick? that's just plain unusual.

Did anybody understand the Diabolo trick : Illusion - behind the back magic throw? What was the illusion? Did the diabolo never leave the string or something?


Draco, I was thinking about your windabolo the other day when I was in a hobby shop and saw some model airplane propellors. How's it coming?

Well, I gave up on it due to the fact that i couldnt find any perfect propellers, its probably not gonna work, and I didnt really have any time for it.

I saw a guy at Bristol Juggling Convention (that's Bristol UK) trying this with a piece of diabolo string tied between his fingers.  Definitely interesting though.

I saw this site a lil while ago (think it was from Marden117's post on obscure Japanese juggling websites) and I think many of the videos have been caught by the IJDB's web trawler bot.  Some very creative stuff I'll agree if not for some poor quality video.  Might build a diabolo cannon...  Though I don't think ramming it into a PVC waste tube, spraying hairspray in the back and igniting it would do much good...

EDIT: Actually, looking at him, he seems to be one of the OHAKO cigarbox guys, which would explain the skills.  He's got a lot of hairbrained ideas though, typical Japanese (is it Shindoku?  The Japanese company that makes really pointless inventions, like a hardhat with a suction cup so when you fall asleep on the train, you don't slump onto the guy beside you).

His site is full of weird stuff.
Devil rope, that has to be one of the stupidest but most inventive ideas ever.
That bazooka is great. If it worked i would want one.

I think the bazooka did work well tbh, and it could obviously be made better as the only thing that seemed to not work too well was the loading system, my view is that it seemed to be bad because he couldn't do the 3d shuffle (correct me if i'm wrong, but i've not viewed any videos of him doing 3d)
oh yeah, and he kept dropping the diabolos  :D not that i wouldn't.  

awesome contraptions and a cool site, hopefully i'll get some time to view all the videos at one point :P

EDIT: - Draco, i followed the link and the pic of your wind diabolo isn't hosted anymore so i can't view it  :( ... i wouldn't mind a look at it if you could get it back up.

Hehe, the bazooka is pretty cool(except i have a hand that does a better job than that) but 2 thumbs up for the creativity.

Oh yeah, and i reuploaded that picture. Go to the wind diabolo topic to get the link which should be working again.

Draco the problem with your wind diabolo is that no air flow can exist. The fan needs to suck air in from somewhere in order to blow it out of the cup, with a solid diabolo shell behind the fan, no air fllow will take place( try putting a piece of paper in front of a fan and blowing at it, doubt itll spin). Best bet would be to develop the diacopter, as at lest air can flow through this design. Whether itll ever take off depends on how fast you can spin it and how light you can develp it. but i reckon potentially this could hover.

I wrote to Sebas and asked him a few questions. Here are the answers, filtered through Google translator both ways:

>What is your name?

My name is Hideki Sumita.
My web name is Sebas-chan.

>What does "Deep Juggling" mean? I like it.

The highest point can be seen.
However, nobody doesn't see the deepest point.

Therefore, I aim at the deepest point.

>Did you ever get the diabolo bazooka working better? I
>want to build one.

Please use the technique and the tool opened to the public freely.
A structural chart was drawn. Please refer.
