This is a LEGO version of the popular Hoberman Sphere toy.

Although the sphere is pretty stable, it can’t really take the repeated abuse of being handled by the public at a show.  I built the spinner so that I didn’t have to hang around and open and close it myself, or keep putting it back together.

Update 10/18/2016: Instructions for building the stand are now available here.

It works really well when connected to a programmable controller to repeatedly start and stop it.

One thought on “Hoberman Sphere

  1. Hi That’s a great model but it’s very confusing as you list the stand and the sphere on two separate pages without any link between them or even words to “look for the stand / sphere”
