You asked for a re-shoot of the Endless Spring... and here it is.
This is one of Tim's absolute favourite 'party pieces...'
The lid is removed from a large tube, and an assortment of colourful fabric-covered springs starts shooting out from the top of the tube. It seems impossible that there can be so many... and still they keep coming!
The original inspiration was a joke toy made by a company in Germany. They made a small box which apparently contained soap - the label said 'Savon de Paris - La Tour Eifel'. However this turned out to be a rather tall story, since when you opened the box, a fabric covered spring leapt out, giving you a big surprise!
Tim then decided to take the idea to the limit, and bought lots of big springs, covering them in bright fabric, and loading them into the giant tube. When he takes some of his toys to a party, this is one of the favourite items! The only problem is that people want to see it over and over, so Tim is kept busy popping all the springs back into the tube, before releasing them again to general acclamation!
Subsequently Tim was asked to help making a version with all the springs covered in pink fabric. It was used in a science television project, and was supposed to demonstrate the human intestines.
