  • How to make a pyramid out of buckyballs

    How to make a pyramid out of supraballs

    • 1

      Form a single strand of balls.

    • 2

      Break off nine balls, and attach the two ends to form a ring.

    • 3

      Transform the ring into a triangle. Pinch three of the balls in the circle together with your thumb and forefinger, forming a point. The circle now looks like a teardrop. Holding the point in place, push the rounded end of the teardrop inward, forming two new points. This completes the triangle.

    • 4

      Repeat Steps 2 through 3 until you have 16 triangles total. This will not require the entire strand of balls.

    • 5

      Select four triangles, and snap them together to form a larger triangle. Do this by snapping three of the triangles together side-by-side in this pattern: pointed side up, pointed side down, pointed side up. This forms a base for the larger triangle. Snap the remaining triangle, pointed side up, above the middle triangle of the base.

    • 6

      Repeat Step 5 three more times for a total of four large triangles.

    • 7

      Snap the four triangles together to form one large triangle. Do this by snapping three triangles together side-by-side in the following pattern: pointed side up, pointed side down, pointed side up. Snap the remaining triangle, pointed side up, above the middle triangle of the base.

    • 8

      Bring the three points of the triangle together, by bringing them upward and inward, forming a three-dimensional figure. By snapping the points together, the sides will naturally snap together. When all the points and sides snaps together successfully, the result is a four-sided pyramid.

  • How to make a sphere out of Supraballs

    Supraballs

    is a magnetic toy consisted of 216 small magnetic spheres.  These magnets are made from an alloy of neodymium, iron, and boron to form a material that is the strongest known type of permanent magnet, holding up to 1000 times its own weight. They can be pulled, twisted, shaped, and snapped together into literally millions of different ways. Let’s see how to make a sphere out of supraballs.

    Sphere

    • Form a single strand of balls.

    • Break off nine balls, and attach the two ends to form a ring.

    • Transform the ring into a triangle. Pinch three of the balls in the circle together with your thumb and forefinger, forming a point. The circle now looks like a teardrop. Holding the point in place, push the rounded end of the teardrop inward, forming two new points. This completes the triangle.

    • Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until you have 20 triangles. This will not require the entire strand of balls.

    • Select five triangles. Snap a pointed end of each triangle together. Use the pointed ends that attract (not repel) one another. The sides will naturally snap together, and the resulting shape will look like a hexagon with one side missing.

    • Close the gap in the hexagon by joining the sides of the two triangles that are unconnected. This forms a three-dimensional figure that looks like a raised pentagon.

    • Select five more triangles. Snap a flat side of each triangle to a flat side on the perimeter of the pentagon shape you made in Steps 4 and 5. Use the flat sides that attract rather than repel. The resulting shape should look like a five-pointed flower.

    • Repeat Steps 5 through 6 to form a second flower-like shape.

    • Intertwine the “petals” on both flowers to make a sphere. Do this by snapping a petal from one flower between two petals of another flower, continuing around until all the petals are interlocked.

          Like buckyballs and neocube, the famous magnetic balls toy, Supraballs are the perfect office toy or Christmas gift, stimulating both hemispheres of the brain for the receiver. Not only SupraBalls are an insanely brilliant toy, but they are a great replacement for the stress reliever ball.

  • What is buckyballs ?


    Buckyballs are a form of carbon molecule which takes a ball-like shape. While they occur naturally, they have only been discovered relatively recently. 

    Background

    Just as the key building block to life on earth is the carbon atom, carbon is the key to one of the most promising branches of nanotechnology. Much of the current research and commercialisation of nanotechnology relies on tubes, wires and balls made from carbon atoms. All are known by a number of names. The carbon based tubes can be carbon nanotubes, buckytubes and very long tubes are often referred to as nanowires. The balls are known as fullerines or buckyballs.

    Scientists have learned how to produce them, and how to manipulate them to produce many interesting and important effects. Buckyballs are an important part of the field of nanotechnology, the study and implementation of machines at the smallest levels. This technology, still in its infancy, promises to be an important source of innovation in the years ahead.              

    History of Buckytubes and Buckyballs

    Russian researchers discovered carbon nanotubes in the 1950s but the research was only published in Russian and the Cold War meant this information was not widely available. In the 1980s knowledge surrounding carbon nanotubes and balls become more widespread. The balls resembled the geodesic dome shape designed by American, R. Buckminster Fuller, and the buckyball or fullerene was named in his honour. The simplest form of buckyball is the C60 Buckminsterfullerene. A shape instantly recognisable for it’s soccer ball like features.

    Buckyballs

    In the simplest buckyball or buckminsterfullerene are 60 carbon atoms with each carbon atom covalently bonded to three adjacent carbon atoms. The resultant sphere is around 1nm in diameter. Other fullerenes exist with their name given by the symbol for carbon, C, followed by the number of carbon atoms present, e.g. C60, C70 and C80.

    Making Buckyballs

    Although buckyballs spontaneously occur in nature from origins as simple as candle soot, their discovery is a very recent occurrence. Japanese researcher Eiji Osawa of Toyohashi University of Technology proposed the existence of buckyballs in 1970.

    However, it took until August 1985 for Richard Smalley, Harry Kroto and Bob Curl to perform an experiment at Rice University in the USA that produced buckyballs. Their experiment vaporised carbon with a laser and produced a very small quantity of buckyballs. The quantity was enough to prove their existence, but not enough to study them in detail. For this work they were awarded the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

    In order to produce larger quantities for study purposes researchers from the Max Planck Institute and the University of Arizona combined forces to develop a method that used two carbon electrodes in a helium or neon atmosphere. When an arc was generated between the electrodes buckyballs were generated along with carbon soot that required removal by a solvent.

    This was still not enough quantity for commercial purposes. Several methods now exist for making buckyballs in tonnage amounts but they tend to be a closely guarded commercial secret. The first bulk production method is known as combustion synthesis. Combustion synthesis burns a hydrocarbon and oxygen mixture at low pressure to produce 95% pure buckyballs.

    Buckyball Applications

    A range of promising applications exist for buckyballs. With buckyballs having hardness akin to or greater than that of diamond, researchers have seen promise for buckyball use within armour. This hardness also allows buckyballs to be added to various polymers to make them stronger.

    Modified buckyballs are also being developed as antioxidants for use in humans. When a buckyball encounters a free radical, the unpaired electron in the free radical joins with a delocalised electron in the buckyball. The buckyball is modified in order to make it water soluble and suitable for medical use.

    Modifying a buckyball by adding or replacing an atom in order to change the properties of the buckyball is called functionalization.

    Functionalized buckyballs are being developed for targeted drug delivery. The buckyball encases a minute dose of a particular drug. By controlling the functionalization of the buckyball the drug remains encased until the buckytube reaches the site where the drug is required. The buckyball then releases it.
