 Astrojax Orbital Ball Toy

Some toys seem like they would be easy to make. Take the Astrojax Orbital Ball Toy here. Invented by an American physicist, it seemed easy - but the mathematics behind it actually took two years and hundreds of prototypes to get just right. And we're so glad that time was spent, because now we have one awesome toy. Read on, and fall in love with the Astrojax Orbital Ball Toy.

Ok, so we added a few words to the name Astrojax, so it would be a little more descriptive (even though Astrojax Orbital Ball Toy is a bit clunky). But whatever - Astrojax are fantastic. The end balls are fixed and the center ball can move. Each ball is precisely weighted and the whole thing can be used to perform all sorts of tricks and orbital motion experiments. Also (and this is why we really love our Astrojax Orbital Ball Toy), they were played with in space. That's right: in 2002, Astrojax were played with on the ISS to see how they'd spin in space. Watch the video and see for yourself. Get an Astrojax Orbital Ball Toy today, and you too can play with the same balls they played with in space!
