This GIF is from a Youtube video that was recorded in an exhibit which took place in Museum of Science in Valencia, Spain. This is a solid metal bar that is passing through a curved parabola carved in a plastic sheet. The tilted position of the bar is making this possible. Straight lines form hyperbolic shapes when rotating. A complete explanatory video.
