With innumerable ways to interact with the Orbiter™ LT, including a hand spinner, a no-friction trackball, and a spinning top, the Orbiter LT will undoubtedly bring you hours of excitement with endless possibilities.

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 Orbiter LT is made of aircraft grade aluminum with a type 2 anodized finish for a protective and durable finish.

  • Body diameter: 1" [25.4 mm]
  • Overall thickness: 9/16" [14.3 mm]
  • Chrome steel ball: 5/8" [15.9 mm] diameter
  • Weight: approximately 23 grams [0.8 oz]
  • Chrome steel ball weight: approximately 17 grams [0.6 oz]

    The Orbiter LT contains 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 fun that can result from using devices such as the Orbiter™ LT, there is currently a popular fascination over the use of these so called "fidget toys". Their use is based upon the scientific evidence that people can benefit from these playful, secondary interactions to relieve stress and anxiety, improve concentration, and even boost memory. Numerous studies have proven that minor distractions, such as using fidget devices, can help improve productivity in both children and adults. There have also been studies that show fidgeting can improve those with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). But this is 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?
    • Doodle?

    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 LT a try. It not only is 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!

    Using the Orbiter LT can be as simple or as comprehensive as you want it to be. The basic setup is to grab it between your thumb and index finger, and place the chrome steel ball onto the surface of the magnet between the two outer aluminum caps. With a gentle rotating motion, guide the ball around the circumference of 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 LT horizontally with the side cap facing up. Place the chrome steel ball into the groove surrounding the "cup", and try to guide the ball on 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 LT similar to a miniature trackball. Hold the Orbiter LT with the side cap facing up and the ball sitting in the cup. Roll the ball around using your thumb while it rotates in the cup.

    The Orbiter™ LT can also be spun onto a smooth surface like a top. By using the chrome steel ball as the rotating contact point with 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 heightened level of skill. People will bow to your greatness when you enter the room!

    We also offer additional chrome steel balls on our site, add one or two extra balls to your Orbiter™ LT and totally change the feel of motion. There are many other ways in which to use the Orbiter™ LT, just use your imagination!

      Shipping Times

      PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current logistics delays, shipping times may take longer than expected. This is especially true for International shipments, where delivery times can take weeks longer than usual. This is beyond our control, and we ask that you please be patient with expected deliveries until shipping companies get back to a more "normal" schedule.

      We make every effort to process orders within one working day, however there may be slight delays depending upon the number of orders we receive, holiday periods and available staffing resources. Typically we will process all orders within no more than 2 working days.

      Shipping times (from the time the package is dropped off at the carrier) will vary depending upon the carrier, method of shipment and destination. For example USPS Domestic First Class Mail should take between 2-3 days, but we have seen instances of 5-7 days. Domestic Priority Mail should take 1-2 days, but can take anywhere from 1-4 days. Domestic Express Mail should take one day, but that is only if your processed order is delivered to the post office before the cutoff time (typically 12:00 noon). Also keep in mind that weather and travel distance can have an effect on delivery times.

      International shipments have even more variables that must be considered. A package sent by USPS First Class International can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks, sometimes longer depending upon the country. International shipments have the potential of being delayed by Customs, as well as having additional taxes or fees levied on a package. These are out of our control, and we advise that you become familiar with your specific country's shipping regulations to understand the impact to your shipment.
