Zero gravity slinky free fall box
« on: November 06, 2018, 10:31:18 AM »
By holding a slinky up in the air and dropping it, you can put something attached to the bottom of the slinky into a free fall state that weighs >2/3 the weight of the slinky. From this you can attach many slinky's to a platform and using computers and machine's build a free fall platform where the platform is in constant free fall and you would get an out of body experience standing on one.

It wouldn't be in constant free fall and slinkies have horrible tensile strength.  The platform would eventual reach an equilibrium where the box would no longer be falling or rising.
