Dr Ken - In a Spin

1 scientist, 1 briefcase and 1 bizarre phenomenon. This walkabout recreates Jean Perrins playful science prank in which he added a running aviation gyroscope inside a suitcase and then checked it into a Paris railroad station. A porter picked it up and began carrying it through the station. When he tried to turn a corner; the suitcase turned to an unexpected angle. Shouting "The Devil himself must be inside!" he dropped the suitcase and ran away.
