OriginEdit

This metal pinwheel was owned by the famous movie director Alfred Hitchcock. It may have inspired the cinematography for his famous 1958 film "Vertigo", which was the first to pioneer the now popular "Vertigo effect" to create an illusion of dizzying heights.

Was used in the episode "No Pain, No Gain" to interrupt an artifact sale in Japan.

EffectsEdit

When spun, it sends a gust of petals and sparkles in the direction of the wind that instantly knocks out anyone it comes into contact with. This is the result of an instant and overwhelming sensation of vertigo in the subject, causing them to faint from panic. It seems to spin very rapidly, even if only a small amount of force was applied. It must be continuously kept spinning in order to stay active.
