CREATING YOUR UNIVERSE, ONE ORBIT AT A TIME


The Orbitar, a new multimedia musical instrument rooted in the ancient art of poi spinning, utilizes technology to combine play, movement, and music, into a contagiously fun and undeniably good-for-you skill toy. As an extension of the body and a magnifier of our movement, the Orbitar enables you to create a universe of live audio and visual compositions, one orbit at a time.
