Extreme Velocity Desktop Toy, Halospheres, Reaches Funding Goal on Kickstarter in Less Than One Week

Product development company Hedra is creating quite the stir with their latest product, Halospheres. The brand new desktop toy is designed to reach speeds over 3600 RPM simply through the accompanied force of wind power, creating a kinetic light effect and a mesmerizing midday distraction. With over 550 backers, Halospheres has nearly doubled its Kickstarter funding goal, and with 28 days left, it's showing no signs of slowing down.

Halospheres works simply in just a few easy steps. Users start by manually spinning the Halospheres on its plate. Next, by blowing into the steel nozzle that's included, an additional force is then created to accelerate the spheres. Once the angle is just right, users can see the spheres themselves reach unbelievably high speeds.

In order to achieve its extreme velocity, Halospheres utilizes the Magnus effect to generate a unique lift force, and combines it with a high angular momentum and a low coefficient of friction from its rolling motion.

Once at top speed, the reflective properties of the spheres blend together to create a double-halo effect from any significant light source (windows, lamps, flashlights, etc.). Each light source creates an additional set of halos, which displays the engaging and captivating distraction that is Halospheres.

Accompanied by a concave-shaped spinning plate that is hand cast in black resin, the spheres are cast from stainless steel and then polished to a mirror finish. They are then plated with real gold, which creates the signature halo hue.

"The Hedra team is overwhelmed with the amount of support we've received from backers," said project creator Kent Blazek. "To say thank you, we've decided to introduce our first stretch goal: a brand new color option for Halospheres. Once we hit the $50,000 mark, we will offer Halospheres in a Cool Steel color in addition to the Classic Gold. The Kickstarter community has given our team an array of feedback, and we want to ensure that our loyal backers are being heard."

With an estimated ship date of June 2018, Backers can pre-order Halospheres starting at $32 for a limited time. To learn more, visit the campaign at bit.ly/HalospheresKS.
