• This decorative entertaining toy is a pendulum device to showcase a players eye to hand coordination skills. The object is to set the ring in motion, from one taller uniquely angled post in order to ring the second shorter conversely angled post. Players are challenged to learn six orbiter swings, each one different with increasingly difficult swing paths, and then to see which player will make the most ringers.
• The Orbiter is similar to the executive gift Newton’s Cradle in that they are both pendulum devices, used to demonstrate the laws of motion, and to serve a decorative function for the home and office. Newton’s Cradle and the Orbiter are part of a group of toys known as “art in motion toys”.

Description

Orbiter is 10″ tall, it has a 3.5″X3.5″ six sided hard wood base, two clear acrylic posts, a cord and a ring. Game rules are included. The Orbiter is similar to the executive gift Newton’s Cradle in that the Orbiter is a pendulum device, used to demonstrate the laws of motion. Newton’s Cradle and the Orbiter are part of a group of toys known as “art in motion toys”. Swing descriptions: To learn the swings, please use the text below and the video demonstrations. Swing # 1 – With the long post toward the player, swing # 1 requires that the ring be drawn back to the right side of the long post. Swing the ring down and then up onto the shorter post. Swing # 2 – With the long post toward the player, swing # 2 requires that the string be looped left and drawn back. Swing the ring down and then up onto the shorter post. Swing # 3 – With the short post toward the player, swing # 3 requires that the ring be pulled back, up and out several inches to the left of the shorter post. Swing the ring down toward the base of the longer post. It will then curve out and then back and up onto the shorter post. Swing # 4 requires that the string be looped around the long post to the right and back so that the ring is held over the top of the short post. Swing the ring out to the right. It must travel all the way around the long post up and onto the shorter post. Swing # 5 requires that the string be looped once around the long post and then drawn out to the right of the top of the long post. Swing the ring down between the two posts. It will then loop out around and back up onto the shorter post. Swing # 6 – requires that the string be looped twice around the long post to the right and drawn back to the player. Swing the ring out hard to the right. It will travel back around the long post twice and then catch onto the shorter post.

• In order to score the Orbiter Grand Slam you must make six ringers in a row using all six swing types. For the last and most difficult of the grand slam swings you must make the ring fly around the taller post 2.5 times before landing on the shorter post. The swing concepts can be understood in minutes but they may take a lifetime to perfect.
• The Orbiter ring toss story began years ago at the Admirals Inn on the island of Antigua. The games creator David Copplestone was taking a sailing trip through the Caribbean in 1980. It was there that he joined a long line of people playing a Bimini ring toss game. The smiles on the faces and the wear on that hook showed this pastime’s popularity. As David played, he thought, “If there was a desktop version of this game, millions of people could enjoy it.” In 1990 the Orbiter was launched.
