Editor's Note: This file was selected as MATLAB Central Pick of the Week

There are three models in this submission
1. Simple psysical model of fidger spinner - easy start with Simscape Multibody
You can spin it! Just for fun :)
Descriptive video (on Russian)

2. Spinner Model with Friction - explore how viscous friction in bearing affects spinner rotation

3. 3DOF gyro model - spinner in 3D
You can make interactive expirements with the gyro and learn precession and infuence of the gravity on spinner.
