Physics Toy (Final Assessment) Tristan Coombs

Mighty Beanz

Mighty Beanz are toy collectibles that were first manufactured in 2002 by Moose Enterprises in Melbourne, Australia. These toys were the inspiration to my physics toy and use the same physics fundamentals as they do.

Mighty Beanz use the small steel ball inside of its shell to flop its light shell in quick succession to create movement.


When my toy is placed at the top of the track, the force on the top of the pill-shaped model allows the toy to flop over for the first time. When the toy completes it's first flop, it will lye on a slant, encouraging the marble inside of the toy to move to the bottom of tube. When the marble hits the bottom of the pill, it will apply the force into the bottom of the pill, forcing it to begin it's sequence again. Once the top of the toy reaches it's highest point, the force of the marble and the gravity acting on the toy will make the toy flop over again, continuing the sequence until the toy reaches the end of the slope.
