I'm not looking for licensed merchandise, I would just like a small desktop item that uses the basic multi-spinning ring model

thanks though

Seen those before, they're just your basic gyroscopes. You should be able to find them anywhere that sells desktop toys (or "executive toys" in some places).

Saw the premier of Eureka on Sci Fi, and the 'machine' there was basially the same thing, on a smaller scale. 3 rings in concentric formation....Don't know how/if that helps at all, but I thought I'd mention it.

It's not exact, but very close. The middle ring is solid.

I think that's just a standard 1 ring gyro. The outter 'rings' are actualy fixed, a metal frame, and the central 'wheel' is the only thing which moves.

But that's more than I offered.

Well, a search for "2 ring gyroscope" doesn't bring anything up. So a little tabletop toy probably doesn't have two, you're right. Anything that looks more advanced was built by a science class or something. And those might be the same thing, actually. It's hard for me to tell.
I actually wonder if two rings would throw it off, since I'm not finding anything that has two. Huh.

Actually, it's 3 rings that rotate, not just 2.

Guess that's what makes it all science-geeky and such, huh?

Guess it's been awhile since I saw that movie. I thought it was just two rings in the middle rotating and two on the outside stationary.

A google image search for gyroscope turned up this. http://gyrogym.com/pages/1/index.htm
Might be a little bigger than you wanted.

Ha-ha! I've seen these in action. Looks damn fun, but doubt anyone has a desk large enough.
