As a professional yo-yoer, when people ask me about yo-yoing, rarely do they ever ask about the string. However, the string is an integral part of the yo-yoing, for without the string, you simply have an overly expensive paperweight. This short video explores and illustrates what would happen if we could actually manipulate a yo-yo without a string in the same way as we can with a string.
