Devil Sticks

The manipulation of devil sticks (also devil-sticks, devilsticks, flower sticks, gravity sticks, or juggling sticks) is a form of gyroscopic juggling or equilibristics, consisting of manipulating one stick ("baton") between two other sticks held one in each hand. The baton is lifted, struck, or stroked alternately by the two control sticks ('handsticks' or 'sidesticks'), stabilising the baton through gyroscopic motion.
