Gumboc Self Righting Rock
By now you’re probably wondering why the hell am I featuring a rock on GR. The answer is quite simple in fact. This ain’t a rock. Nope, it’s an object crafted from man – two men to be exact and 1000 of hours of painstaking work. The Gomboc is in fact a ‘self righting object’. No matter what side the Gomboc is placed on it will always ‘right itself’. 10 years of work and many a awards later, Gabor Domokos and Peter Varkonyi of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics finally have vindication.
