Well, I'd like to give an example of figure that brought
an idea about new figure. New in way of putting non-
circular hand, or Poi movement.

2 Anti spin

This move is thoeretic, cause by putting this in practical
manner, 'critical momentum''ll make it far difficult, than
that looks like.

Well there are more of them I see, line, triangle, square
and many other.

--------------------------------------------------

Mirror thanks to mcp.

Thanks to unknown uber for inspiration.

Stay tuned, more to come.

love 'n' light,

dunc: black dot hand, blue dot poi head.

came out of the latter part of this discussion i believe:
[Old link]


i'm not sure about the second pattern either due to the momentum change issues...

it seems you would run into the same problems as when trying to spin superspin with poi - that being a change of direction (momentum) that requires the hand to push the poi in the new direction rather than pull it.

this is required when moving up or down from the the 3 or 9 o'clock positions to the 6 or 12 o'clock positions.

Richee, I love the way that you're thinking. smile
But you're not quite there....
Add gravity and inertia/momentum to your theoretical model.

biggrin

Also look more carefully at the movement of the hand as the poi goes past the middle in the infinity (top figure)
I think its not quite right biggrin

yup, that aint right, not with pesky gravity and all. Theoretically you could do that figure eighty pattern with pure up and down hand movement, but not like that.

i kind of agree with you. But you can get round that if your poi have any degree of 'stiffness' to them, as with cone poi or ropes. You only need a very small application of push if your really careful working with the downward momentum of the poi.

Meh, do them with clubs.

I find they work best if you're only spinning one club because that frees up a hand, letting you shake your fist at the ground while shouting 'gravity, I defy you!' wink

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Could you do it if you were constantly changing between normal way up, and upside down to counter the gravity? umm

Oooooooh... spinning poi inside a gryoscope! eek

Interesting stuff, from first glance i'd say the first one will just about work if we are looking directly down on the poi (altho not sure the middle line would be exactly straight)

the second diagram looks like it would need clubs not poi, since the poi change direction at the points and seem to be pushed to the next point.

umm the 2nd one is actually possible as I see it.. only the poi that goes up would have to be swung from a stall and directly isolated. Will try this in the evening I promise wink

Smile.. It confuses people..:)

White: the bit me and cole are unsure about is the fact that it goes out to the side, then when the poi is horizontal, and the head is pointed in toward the centre, your hand pushes it back into the middle again. Cole reckons this isn't possible. i reckon it takes very specific poi and is just very very hard.

If you take out the pushing part, then the poi head just goes up and down. That is definitely possible. i was doing it with duballstar and durbs on tuesday. It was ugly, jerky and unreliable, but i can see how it could be cleaned up. Its about the same order of difficulty as an isolation centred on the head of the poi.

Hmm of course it cant be done as in the picture.. It would take a specific entry and the poi would have to enter when they are vertical.. then make a kind of a full iso.. then exit. I will try to play with it for a while and see what I come to..

And I also just now remembered that these are just one poi moves : )) With the 2nd you could do the top and bottom part each with one poi.. Somehow.. Probably.. smile

the second one works just fine if you turn it 90degrees, so the poi point down when at the top of the circle, up at the bottom, and point outwards at the sides.



i do a half a beat of that one pretty regularly with two poi. Pretty easy to get clean, looks nice, and non scary enough for completely non-techy people to learn.

First one: Come on guys, look a bit more carefully at the motion of the hand and the poi as the poi goes past the centre position.
Its only possible with a club, and then its not very pretty because the flow will be broken by the 2 corners as the head passes the centre position.

Grade: D(minus) I'm very dissapointed in you all, I was expecting more from my favorite object manipulating geeks.

Cole, I follewed your link to the staff thread thanks, yes very nece and vey geeky smile

as I said, that top pattern is poi-ssible with pure up and down hand movement, but not like that. It works fine if you smoothly follow the fig 8 pattern, but not if you "bounce" at the centre like in Richees pictcher...

[Full catch]



This move can be done starting with double catch and con-

tinue swapping head or handle.

Very close to isolation, but different.
