1. You can actually watch the bifurcation leading into and out of chaos. It’s fun to try and mark the moments when one undulating line becomes two, when two lines become four, and so on.

  2. I used to do this with the X and Y inputs on my oscilloscope, different sort of display, but same underlying patterns. Fascinating.

  3. Well, just made one with my (preschool-aged) kids – and a broomhandle braced across 2 chairs, tape, cotton, and 15 Christmas-tree baubles. Wasn’t quite as flawless, but a great little sciencey project nonetheless! So cheers for posting this video, Chris:)
