WARNING: This is not a toy for children. This product contains small parts and strong magnets which are a choking hazard and can cause serious injury or death if swallowed. Please keep away from Pacemakers.
The Orbiteris made of durable 6Al-4V titanium. Known for its corrosion resistance, titanium is a lightweight metal with a very high strength-to-weight ratio. It could be described as having the strength of steel with a weight comparable to aluminum.
- Body diameter: 1" [25.4 mm]
- Overall thickness: 9/16" [14.3 mm]
- Chrome Steel ball: 5/8" [15.9 mm] diameter
- Weight:approximately 30 grams [1.1 oz]
- Chrome steel ball weight: approximately17 grams [0.6 oz]
The Orbitercontains a neodymium (rare-Earth) magnet, which has a very strong magnetic field. The following cautions should be exercised:
- Pacemakers can be affected
- Not intended for use by children
- Avoid placing near any electronics and/or magnetic media such as credit cards, magnetic ID cards, cellphones or televisions. It can also interfere with compasses and navigation equipment
- Although the magnet has a protective surface nickel plating, neodymium can corrode and should not be exposed to prolonged periods of moisture
- The magnet is fragile and can peel, chip, crack or shatter
- The magnet can become demagnetized at high temperatures
- Persons with nickel allergies should avoid prolonged contact with the magnet
Besides the obvious enjoyment and funthat can resultfrom using devices such asthe Orbiter, there is currently a popularfascination over the use of theseso called"fidget toys". Their useisbased upon the scientific evidencethat people can benefit from these playful, secondary interactions to relieve stress and anxiety, improve concentration,and even boost memory.Numerous studies have proven thatminor distractions, such as using fidget devices, can helpimprove productivity in both children and adults. There have also been studies that show fidgeting can improve those with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). But thisis nothing new. Do you:
- Chew on your pen caps?
- Bite your fingernails?
- Twirl or remove/replace your wedding ring?
- Crack your knuckles?
- Play with your necklace?
These are perfect examples of fidgeting. Probably very effective, but not very fun (or hygienic). So what does this all mean? Well, if you are a person who tends to fidget, you may want to give the Orbiter a try. It not only a very satisfying experience, but it may replace one of those bad habits with something a lot more socially acceptable. And if you are not a person who fidgets, you just may not know what you're missing!
How to Use
Using the Orbiter can be as simple oras comprehensiveas you want it to be. The basicsetupis to grab it between your thumb and index finger, and place the chrome steel ball onto the surfaceof the magnet between the two outer titanium caps. With a gentle rotating motion, guide the ball around the circumferenceof the magnet gradually building speed to a comfortable level. Then mix it up by:
- Rotating the ball clockwise, then counter-clockwise
- Initiate and maintain rotational movement of the ball using your arm, or simply by flicking your wrist back and forth
- Use it right handed, then switch to left handed operation
Another method is to hold the Orbiter horizontally with the side cap facing up. Place the chrome steel ball into the groove surrounding the "cup", and try toguide the ballon the groove in a circular motion. Sounds easy, but try building speed without the ball either falling into the cup or jumping out and grabbing the magnet!
You can also manipulate the ball of the Orbiter similar to a miniature trackball. Hold the Orbiter with the side cap facing upand the ball sitting in the cup. Roll the ball around using your thumb while it rotates in the cup.
The Orbiter can also be spun onto a smooth surface like a top. By using the chrome steel ball as the rotating contact pointwith the body sitting on top of the ball, it is possible to spin it like a top. This is more of a challenge, and may take quite a while to master this method of operation. But think of the satisfaction you will get once you achieve this heightenedlevel of skill. People will bow to your greatnesswhen you enter the room!
We also offer additional chrome steel balls on our site, add one or two extra balls to your Orbiter and totally change the feel of motion. There aremany other ways in which to use the Orbiter,just use your imagination!
