Orbitwheels

The Orbitwheel is a new concept for wheeled sports and the idea is simple: two feet, two wheels…and you’re ready to go!

Overview

Orbitwheels are a cross between a skateboard and a pair of inline skates, combining the best features of each. To ride, just step into the hollow wheels, which encircle and rotate sideways around each of your feet. Using a rhythmic wave motion, each foot moves independently, allowing you the freedom to turn and accelerate in unusual ways.

Learning the Orbitwheel wave propulsion technique is enjoyable and challenging. Once you master the basics, you’ll find that Orbitwheels are designed for amazing tricks and turns that seem to defy the laws of physics. Catch the Orbitwheel wave!

Unicycles and Lunicycles
We recently visited with the Lake Oswego Unicycle club that meets at Lakeridge Jr. High School to introduce them to the Lunicycle. Everyone was eager to get on and start riding the Lunicycles, including the club director and a couple parent volunteers. Before they started, we explained the subtle differences between riding a traditional unicycle and riding the Lunicycle; that they need to lean forward on the Lunicycle as opposed to leaning back on a unicycle, they need to bend their knees and keep low on the Lunicycle, they need to squeeze against the leg supports while riding the Lunicycle, and when they want to turn they need to twist at their knees as opposed to twisting at their waist. Once the kids were able to get on the Lunicycles they all were riding like pros within a few short minutes. At the end of the club time the kids were asked, compared to when they learned to ride the unicycle, which was easier to learn and they all said the Lunicycle! We are excited to follow up with the club in a few weeks to see how they’ve enjoyed the Lunicycle and to see how they’ve improved!

What’s In Your Toy Box?
This past summer we had the opportunity to take part in the second season of ABC’s The Toy Box , a Shark Tank type show where kids are the judges.   We had a great time participating in the show and our experience was similar to that of other national television shows that have featured our products. We decided to send Ywanne, Shane’s daughter, to Los Angeles to represent Inventist and to introduce the world to hers and Shane’s favorite invention, the Orbitwheel. It was a whirlwind of a trip for Ywanne, spending most of her time either behind the scenes or on set. “It was a fun and great experience and I’m grateful for the opportunity to appear on the show, and to compete with a group of such talented and creative inventors.” The Orbitwheel segment aired on Sunday, November 5. If you haven’t watched it already, check out the video below to see how the Orbitwheel did!

Another Chance to Back the Iota
We know, we know. Our Solowheel Iota Kickstarter campaign has concluded and you’ve been kicking yourself for the past week for not getting in while you could to back the campaign and be one of the first people to receive an Iota. Well dry those tears friends, because we are now teaming up with Indiegogo and their InDemand program, giving YOU another chance to get in on the ground floor with our amazing latest creation! With the Indiegogo InDemand program we will be able to increase the awareness of our product, gain additional backers, continue to raise funds towards building the product, and collect additional pre-order sales. This is the first time we have worked with the Indiegogo team and we are excited to see where this opportunity takes us.
