UNIVERSE: Turn around!

€11,878

UNIVERSE is a lifestyle object with eco-high-tech propulsion that works through the application of fundamental physical laws. It is part of the PARADOX product group that has been marketed successfully by us – 4everTREND from Munich/Germany – for some time. See www.paradoxtime.com. In size and appearance, UNIVERSE is somewhat reminiscent of the popular lava lamps that were once a huge success.

The market launch of UNIVERSE is planned for the autumn/winter of 2017. It is by far the largest PARADOX ever in our product range and the one with the highest development costs, which is why we decided to publish the idea as a kickstarter project.

 

UNIVERSE is part of the PARADOX FlowMotion group. FlowMotion means that elements float in a cylinder, rising and falling. No battery or charging station is required. It is powered by a hand movement by simply turning the cylinder over. FlowMotion is patent-pending.

The liquid in the cylinder is non-toxic, the small floats are made of glass and the large ones of gleaming colourful plastic. Premium acrylic that does not discolour is used for the cylinders themselves. The end caps are made of stainless steel with a brushed surface finish. Every UNIVERSE is filled and sealed by hand.

Genuine quality HAND MADE IN GERMANY – a premium product of lasting value.

At rest all floats are at the top. Turning the cylinder over puts them into motion – the glass spheres strike the larger elements and cause them to circulate. As this self-propulsion decreases, all elements rise back up to the top where they remain at rest until they are activated by turning the cylinder over again.

The colourful plates that float in UNIVERSE appear like stars in a miniature universe. The elements truly come into their own when they are exposed to light, radiating in a blaze of colour.

Thus we not only view UNIVERSE as a highly attractive decorative item, but also as a tool to help you concentrate, relax and meditate, even to motivate and inspire you. It is easy to immerse yourself in the world of weightlessness, escaping our hectic times for a moment. Your thoughts start to drift after watching even briefly, floating into other worlds as novel pathways open up in a new universe. Relax, let go, regain your balance.

All this with a timeless lifestyle product that integrates perfectly with any surroundings – on your desk at the office, at home in your living room or for chilling out in the lounge.

UNIVERSE not only comes into its own in one’s individual environment but also in public places such as hotels, restaurants, display windows, waiting rooms and waiting areas, at trade fairs and conventions, in bars and lounges. It attracts attention anywhere and everywhere.

There are 2 ways to customize UNIVERSE:

1. With engraving on the end caps

2. With a transparent plastic insert in the cylinder that is printed with images, logos and the like ...

In business for companies with a logo and advertising slogan – lasting customer retention and long-term visibility are guaranteed. A perfect, exclusive advertising medium!

In the private sector, individual dedications and messages transform an accessory into a permanent and unforgettable memento.

PARADOX emerged from a unique world full of ideas: PARADOXology. It is explained in detail on the website www.paradoxtime.com, along with what a PARADOXist is and how to become one with a certificate after a test.

Risks and challenges

As with any project, there are production challenges but we are confident that we will overcome them based on our experience with the existing PARADOX models.
We want to produce the first “edition” by September / October. Delivery to the kickstarter backers and retailers is planned from October 2017 to February 2018 (Early birds in October / November).
Our production is designed for on-time delivery. We have always succeeded in the past. Transparency is important to us.
We keep our backers appraised of our progress with e-mails every 3 weeks.
