Another Yo-Yo Video from San Francisco

I’ve recently released a new yo-yo called the Populist, which meant it was time to make another yo-yo video. This one was shot around the Mission District in San Francisco. It’s been really windy here lately, so I shot most of these clips in the early morning, which gives the video a really moody/foggy feel. I thought that paired nicely with the song by Benjamin Mørk. Enjoy! I also shot some behind the scenes footage with more details about the yo-yo. The post <span >Another Yo-Yo Video from San Francisco</span> appeared first on Doc Pop's Blog ..read more

I’m proud to say my newest yo-yo video is out now. You can watch it here: The video features an original soundtrack and tricks performed on a modern responsive yo-yo with a counterweight. I’m using a Doc Pop edition The Thing yo-yo for the entire video. This video was shot entirely on Sanchez Street, one of my favorite spaces in San Francisco. It was edited by Edition Yo-Yos.

The Mini-Panzer: The World’s Smallest Yo-Yo

The Mini-Panzer is the smallest unresponsive yo-yo in history. It’s machined in brass, but available with gold or silver plating. It is .7″ tall, weighs 21.5 grams, and has the smallest bearing you’ve ever seen. This video isn’t sponsored content, I just thought it was a cool yo-yo. I bought mine from YoYoExpert, but I think Yo-Yo Store Rewind has some too. Available on some sites here: Spingear YoYoStore Rewind YoYoExpert It’s worth noting that B!ST made an EVEN SMALLER yo-yo back in 2012, but his appears to be responsive. I don’t think it ever made it to the market either, but it looks a ..read more

Yo-Yo Magic Tricks

When I used to work at a yo-yo kiosk, I used to prank my co-workers with these yo-yo magic tricks. I had been meaning to film them for years, but it wasn’t until I heard this funny episode of the 2.0 podcast that I finally got around to filming it. I used a short audio clip from that podcast in part one of my yo-yo magic trick videos. See if you can figure out how I did them: “Although magic and yo-yos are impressive on their own, they could benefit from combining…” Here’s a magic trick that will only impress other yo-yoers. Hints: There is no editing or post production used in these trick ..read more

Why does AI think that the yo-yo emoji looks so beautiful?

Emoji are not displaying correctly in this post. For a better experience, read this article on https://doctorpopular.com/why-does-midjourney-create-beautiful-art-when-i-use-the-yo-yo-emoji/ Y’all know me, right? So you know, when I got access to generative art tools like Dalle 2 and Midjourney, the first thing I tried using as a prompt was the word “yo-yo”. That’s a no-brainer, and you may have already seen my video about it. Using AI to reimagine yo-yo tricks While making that video, I had a strange realization that anytime I used the ? (yo-yo emoji), I’d get a beautiful fantasy landscape t ..read more

Hand-painted wooden yo-yos that look like donuts

Happy #NationalDonutDay! These donut shaped yo-yos were given away at a Dunkin’ Donuts grand opening back in 1948. They are fixed axle with large holes that run through the middle. I asked my friend John Higby to paint on the sprinkles and cream. To be honest, they used to look more like bagels than donuts. Brought out some special yo-yos for this hole-y day. #NationalDonutDay pic.twitter.com/iTmnMGYdNB — DoctorPopular.RSS (@DocPop) June 3, 2022 The post <span >Hand-painted wooden yo-yos that look like donuts</span> appeared first on Doc Pop's Blog ..read more
