Make a Comeback Can

Step 6 of 7: Roll the can

Place the can on the floor and gently roll it away from you. Watch what happens! If you time it just right, you can figure out when the can will start to roll back to you. Then you can "tell" the can to come back, so that it looks like the can is doing what you tell it to do!
