Posted:So, I did a workshop last month in Boston with fNi and while playing around we started trying to air wrap our poi together while air wrapping separately. We couldn't really get it since we didn't play with it for long, but it's definately possible with more practice and I figured out a few variations which Id like to throw out to the community to have a go with it.

Side by Side Tripple Nexus Airwrap

Done with 2 people and 4 poi. Stand next to each other and spin all your poi clockwise. Air wrap your poi with your partner (ie - the person standing on the left side wraps his right poi with the left poi of the person standing on the right). As the poi do half their air wrapped rotation, both of you air wrap your free poi on the already air wrapped poi. This should result in 2 simultaneous air wraps with 3 nexuses that exit into a single air wrap between 2 people, then exit completely.

From Behind Tripple Nexus Airwrap

Same pattern as before except instead of standing side by side, one person comes from behind the other. The person in front does a normal air wrap while the other person comes behind and air wraps both their poi with the front person's air wrap on both sides.

Hyperloop Airwrap

Both people stand facing each other doing buzz saw tangles (hyperloops). One person does forward while the other does reverse. During the hyperloop, let your chains tangle together and air wrap them mid loop... Exit the airwrap, then exit the hyperloops.

In theory you can add more people to these to increase the multi-plex. I think we found some other variations while we played too but I can't remember them at the moment and have no one to play with in regards to this right now. So, have at it and post any other variants you may find!

Posted:multiplex:

Adjective
1. Relating to, having, or consisting of multiple elements or parts.

I think this fits the definition just fine. Multiple nexuses/tangles = multiplex tangles?

Posted:its just that multiplex is already used in manipulation to mean 'releasing more than one object at once' so its a bit confusing to start using it for something else.

cool idea though (if i understood it correctly)

Posted:Close Richee. That is a variation also... The first two I posted about would look like this though:

As far as the use of multiplex goes... Whatever. Call it what you want. Multiplex is just the first thing that came to mind and made sense. I know multiplex is used in juggling to describe throwing multiple balls at once... But poi terminology is good in the sense that you can use terms in combination with other terms to mean other things... Multiplex tangle could mean this and multiplex throw could mean throwing more than one at a time.

If that doesnt work, how about multiplexus (to refer to the mutliple nexuses).

It's interesting to find a move you can't do by yourself.

I wonder could you invent a poi robot to swing poi to play with smile


I live in a world of infinite possibilities.

Posted:well it definitely is possible. this past weekend during wildfire's geekout we (lucas and I) managed to pull it off a few times

i think we were doing the hyperloop one. but standing at an angle such that the middle nexus airwraps
