Impressive physics toy. It's just about rotating a fluid, but the more you play with it, the more you discover.
Turbulence is one of the toughest topics in physics, and here you get a glimpse why... Try creating a
pentagon pattern, it's possible with this dome !
Heavy and high quality toy, metal base, glass cover, ball bearing in the stand.

Opened the box, unpacked the dome, and immediately lost 20 minutes. It's a fantastic piece of kit, seems very well made, and I haven't noticed any issues with it at all as yet. It's literally hypnotizing, and definitely a great way to spend a few minutes relaxing and watching the flow and turbulence.

My original order was NOT at a satisfactory level. The vortex dome has scratches all over it. I reached out to Grand-Illusions & notified them on how dissatisfied I was with their products. I was very pleased on how the handled the situation. They immediately apologized and resent me another vortex dome FREE of charge. My new one came and it was crisp as new and looked amazing. What a beautiful item. I love it. Grand-Illusions knows the meaning of great customer service. Thanks grand-illusions.

At the first day the Vortex dom works beautiful and it was amazing to see, how build spirals like glaxies and so on.
But at the sixth day there was a lot of Airbubbles in the Middle of the dom and im afraid, they will be more and more. I had handle the dom very carefull.
I am very sad because it was not cheap.
