About this project

About Futuristic Lights:

Futuristic Lights has been developing microlight technology for the past 5 years. From the beginning, Futuristic Lights has always been about bringing beautiful lights into different areas of our everyday lives. We first started by launching a Kickstarter for our Kinetic Microlight which brought motion-reactive technology into the gloving and light show world for the first time. With tremendous support from the Kickstarter and gloving community, we were able to successfully fund our project in a record time of 20 minutes. Since then we’ve gone on to create one industry innovating Microlight after another, and this time we’re ready to dive into an entirely new community. Powered by our new Neutron Microlight, the Galaxy is a wonder to behold. Packing all the same benefits as your average spinner and more, the Galaxy puts a unique twist on the world of fidget spinners.

Designed From The Ground Up:  

The Galaxy was designed from the ground up as an LED fidget spinner. Our team didn’t plop cheap LED lights into an existing spinner, but designed the Galaxy specifically around our innovative microlights. We’ve utilized strong neodymium magnets instead of plastic clips. These magnets have given the Galaxy an easy and repeatable assembly, preventing wear on the casing. We also offer the ability to flip the lights in opposite directions for custom light trail effects. 

How is the Galaxy designed to achieve a long spin time?  

The Galaxy uses a high quality 606 hybrid ceramic bearing made out of Silicon Nitride. This decreases total friction, resulting in a lengthier spin time. Furthermore, the Galaxy contains three weighted steel balls. The weight of these three balls adds to the Galaxy’s overall mass, increasing the momentum while spinning. Because of this, the Galaxy also has a solid weight that feels great in your hand.

Neutron Microlight Features:

The Neutron come packed with 14 incredible flashing patterns and 4 different unique color sets per pattern. This lets you customize your stars. Demo Mode will skip to the next pattern every 12 seconds, This alone will keep you entertained for hours on end. If that's not your style you can cycle manually through all the patterns until you find a combo you like. To prevent your Neutrons light from accidentally wasting precious energy in your bag or pocket, we've implemented a battery lock feature. This keeps your lights brighter for longer. If say, you accidentally choose a colors set you don't like, and don't know how to change it back, no need to fear factory reset is here!

 

Microlight Lifetime Warranty:

We make the highest quality micro-lights, and we don't just say that lightly... We're prepared to back up our words with a LIFETIME WARRANTY! This covers any and all manufacturing defects right out of the box, or defects that may show up later. We've got you covered!

 

Risks and challenges

Any Kickstarter project comes with a certain degree of risk, but we have the experience and preparation to minimize these risks. We have successfully released several electronic products previously, as well as an injection-molded product. We have a manufacturer lined up for both the electronics and plastics. The firmware is almost complete, and we have been testing it extensively.

The only issue that might arise is that we could have to revise the injection mold, which would add a slight delay to fulfillment.
