About

Help make ORB DROP DP a reality today by backing one of the rewards on the right-hand side of this page. Thank you for your support!

The Idea

To design and create high quality, performance driven, physics toys at an affordable price.  Along with our passion for design and engineering, we have remained young at heart with the curiosity to develop toys. Physics has always been a science discipline that has captivated our team. Hopefully this inspiration allows us to introduce STEM related subjects to children of all ages.

Orb drop dp creates a great building and learning experience for its users. All who assemble an orb drop dp will be exposed to many unique areas: Hands-On Construction, Tools, Mechanical Fasteners, Materials (wood, plastic, metal), Dynamics, Kinetic Energy and more.

The orb drop dp is the ultimate gift and perfect addition to any toy room, kitchen counter-top, living room table, night stand, or office desk. It is sure to start a conversation and capture the attention of all who see it in action.

The History

The first scientific investigations of the pendulum was around 1602 by Galileo Galilei. Later, the pendulum clock was invented by Christian Huygens in 1658 and became the world's standard timekeeper, which was used in homes and offices for 270 years. The pendulum clock was able to achieve accuracy of about one second per year before it was superseded as a time standard by quartz clocks in the 1930s.

Pendulums are also used in scientific instruments such as accelerometers and seismometers. Historically, they were used as gravimeters to measure the acceleration of gravity in geophysical surveys, and even as a standard of length.
