what do you call...
...connected, concentric circles that can be moved in 3 dimensions?

in this example, it's being used as sports equipment, but i'm looking for the name of the shape.

Re: what do you call...
the aerotrim (which is the training device) led me to this:

so it's a gyroscope, apparently. thank you! <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

Re: what do you call...
This is totally nothing to do with your original question, but I used to be completely ace at some Sega game built into one of those, where you piloted a fighter and it moved as the plane did. They had one in the basement of Hamleys in London and I used to play it obsessively every time I went there.

Aaaanyway, years later, some fair or something had one and the top scores on the leaderboard were like 20 kills. I hadn't played it in forever, walked up, paid my £2, got 60 kills and landed my fighter safely, and walked off with a grin on my face like I did that sort of thing every day. I love love love love LOVED that game <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

I call it the bane of any clean up crew... can you imagine how many people hurl when on that... and you know it's going everywhere after that.

I've never seen anyone be sick in one (certainly I never have been). Apparently, because the user directly controls the movement, it doesn't cause nausea very often.

Re: what do you call...
Local Army recruiter probably poisoned my image... he hated the job as a recruiter, but it got him a better bonus or something if he had it on his record...

long story short, he had to stay at the state fair and stand around all day pitching the idea of joining the Army to uninterested fair goers all day... until the last day when he had his plan to cruise straight to the beer tent, get himself stupid and make such an incredible mess that they closed the ride for the night. It was a point of pride to take down carnival rides for him.
