Volumetric Toy Perfectly Explains the Pythagorean Theorum

Trevor English

You probably understand the basics of the Pythagorean theorem, but its principles can be applied to create a mesmerizing toy. A2 +B2 = C2 is typically used to calculate the lengths of the sides of triangles, but it also applies to the area of squares made from each side. This is perhaps the best demonstration of where the theorem comes from, and even if you understand this, this toy is still cool to watch.
