The Grommet, an online shopping site and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products, is working with inventor to feature Astrojax, a next generation Yo-yo.

Larry Shaw was studying theoretical physics at Cornell University when he threaded three hex nuts onto a string of dental floss and started playing around with his model of orbiting objects. He noticed the swinging hex nuts made fun patterns, and after many iterations and a diligent patent pursuit, Larry’s creation evolved into Astrojax. The Grommet is proud to support Larry because he's a great example of an entrepreneur who never gave up even after he received rejections from other companies. The Grommet saw his potential and immediately signed him on so he could reach the right audience to make his product a success. Astrojax has also been played with in space!

A cross between juggling and yo-yoing, Astrojax consists of 3 weighted balls on a string that you swing, rebound and rotate rhythmically. There are tons of tricks you can try, or you can invent your own whizzing, spinning, and flipping combinations. The latest generation, Astrojax MX, has modular components so you can easily swap parts and colors. MX Pop is futuristic and aerodynamic, and MX Sport has a soft grip that’s ideal for body and rebound tricks.

Astrojax is addictively fun, plus it’s educational. In classrooms, teachers use Astrojax to demonstrate the basic principles of physics, orbital motion, and rotational energy. Like the pursuit of perpetual motion, once you get started with Astrojax, it’s tough to stop playing.
