2 Bumps

What is the name for this object?

It is used for decorating, you can put it on a shelf or table. It is made of metal, shiny and it moves constantly. Like the two balls that keep bumping into each other, that makes them move constantly. What is the name of these things? I have to buy one and have no clue how to start looking for them online if I don't know what they are called.

  • Not sure. Can you describe it a bit more? Size? Is it just two balls? Are they free-floating or connected to something? WHat?

  • ok, imagine two metal rods with a ball welded to the end of each. The metal rods are hanging from a support and they act like a swing. When one ball hits the other one, then that hits back the first one and so on. The other type is the spinning type.
