This may look like another one of those cheap $2 gimmicky items fr Daiso.
It's a rotatable base for TVs.



So I decided to investigate how it can claim to hold a 20kg TV.
I shall start by unfastening the screw at the bottom.



Wow! The inside is quite intricate, on both bases there are circular tracks.
In between the two bases, there is a web-like piece that contains ball-bearings.


This is the web-like piece.


Here's how a ball-bearing is mounted on the piece.


This product is very thoughtfully engineered.

"Is the same one as the one from Daiso, the Everything $2 Shop? Great stuff"
You sure like to make 'extra' trips due to contemplation.
