Simultaneous three-way observation of optical, acoustic and electric properties demonstrates a theoretical prediction that a spinning prolate spheroid can spontaneously lose contact with the table in the course of its rising motion when the contact friction is weak and the spin is large enough. The durations of the first loss of contact are measured for various initial spin rates and for three aspect ratios. The measurements show good agreements with numerical simulations. It is also visually shown that a spinning hard-boiled egg can jump.
