This is a watermelon colorway, something he became obsessed with after seeing a “protomelon” from Smashing Yoyos. This is a different take on that idea which keeps the color separation while spinning, which also smooths out the painterly green “rind” on the rim.
The Penrose triangle is an object that can’t exist in 3 dimensions, first created by Oscar Reutersvärd in 1934. If you’ve picked up an Mk1 yoyo recently (thank you!), you may have spotted one on the packaging.
This 3d animation reveals how a “3d” version of this triangle only works from a single vantage point.
We’re using this symbol as a representation for a new Mk1 x ??? yoyo that is arriving soon.
In other news, the RBC is finally done with anodizing. It will probably be ready for next month. Thank you for your patience.
