Description

Orbit Kinetic Mobile = Geek Chic. The colourful rings of this striking desk-top mobile spin and twirl gracefully around a central sphere. The motion is continuous and, at first glance, impossible to fathom. The secret lies in the base; a battery-powered motor spins a powerful magnet, which in turn exerts a force on the weight suspended from the rings. Even when you know exactly how it works, the perpetual, rhythmic movement and gravity-defying structure still fascinate. Packed with retro geek-appeal, this is an excellent curiosity gift.

  • Fascinating 'perpetual motion' mobile
  • Multi-coloured rings continuously spin around the central sphere
  • Simple to assemble components
  • Requires 2 x 'AA' batteries
  • 31.5cm

Once you've fathomed out the assembly and it's ready to "go" you wait, prod it, wait a bit more, check the batteries then decide that you'll send it back for a refund. Then, a brainwave (still don't know where that came from) I tried twisting the little pyramid to get some momentum going and hey presto...it worked, still going strong after 8 hours. Looks really effective, a shame that they don't put instructions in/on the box
