We are in the last few hours of our project! I want to thank everyone for the support that you have given me and the rest of the Sonic Boom Gyroscope team, we couldn't have asked for a better community of backers.

Thank you all!

All spinning discs have a mysterious behavior. They act like they are defying some law of physics.

BTR Innovations designed a precision ball bearing Gyroscope that refers to a supersonic aircraft passing through the sound barrier; it will amaze and mystify you, your friends and family! 

New reward:

For those who would like to add the spinning surface to their reward, just add 12$ to your pledge and we will sort it out at the end in the survey!

Thanks again for all your help!

 The Pledges:

Show the effect of angular momentum to your friends, family or students with the new sonic boom Gimbal. You can easily unscrew the gyroscope by hand to show other tricks. You can add the Gimbal to your actual reward, just add 65$ to your pledge, or choose the new reward at 119$ including ceramic bearings and gyroscope (color of your choice)

Thanks for your help! 

 New exclusive color for the backers of this Kickstarter!

It is amazing to see that kids, engineers and scientists are still wondering how their behaviors are possible!

Do you know that Gyroscopes are used in many high technology things like spacecraft and airplane navigation systems, mobile phones, radio controlled toys, and remote controller like the Wii, IPhone and more?

Most of us had their first contact with them when we were kids playing with inexpensive toys made of plastic, metal or wood: do you remember all the fun?!

 DEVELOPMENT:

We worked on a fantastic design, making sure that it will be unique. We made no compromise on material quality: only the best, anodized aircraft grade aluminium, stainless steel, and brass were used.

You can customize your color choice  - Example, you can order a blue gyro, silver stand and green pull handle.

These beautiful objects are built to last a lifetime. Just leave it on your work desk, on a shelf or in a bookcase and see how your friends and family member, young or not, will be drawn to it!

Every gyroscope are carefully finished and inspected before leaving the factory. We take seriously the satisfactions of our customers. We want to make sure to achieve a high level of quality and surface finish.

PRODUCTION PLAN:

For this project we have established a partnership with 3 different high capacity metal shops. Each of them has their own speciality; we are sure that you will have your Sonic Boom Gyroscope in time.

We are ready for a small or a big first order! Our goal is to offer you best quality gyroscopes at the best price possible. We are sure you will love your Sonic Boom Gyroscope for many years!

Your Sonic Boom Gyroscope will be shipped in backer order, in September and October; perfect for a great Christmas gift! If any delay occurs, we will let you know: we want to be as transparent as possible. We will answer our email daily, if you have any questions.

Your Support Is Important! 

Everything is ready to start the production: samples are perfects and our manufacturers are looking forward to start production! By being a backer, you will be part of the adventure and help us start the first production run.

Thanks in advance for your support!! And for being a part of this project! 

EXTRA POINTS:

  • Warranty; we offer a 1 year warranty on all manufacturing defects.
  • At the end of the project, we will send a survey to all backers to collect shipping details, as well as choices of color for the gyroscope, the stand and the handle.
  • For the pledges “BE UNIQUE”: you can choose to put your name or a small inscription of your own.
  • All gyroscopes come with a “user manual” with tips to impress friends and family :) and a big THANK YOU!!!

Risks and challenges

We spend the last several months making sure that we are well equipped to deal with any issues that may arise with the production of the “BTR Sonic Boom Gyroscopes”.

We have selected manufacturer that has excellent track records. We also have mitigation plans if something goes wrong; we will rapidly get back on track. We have allowed ourselves plenty of margins to deliver these orders and are confident we can deliver within the estimated delivery timeframe.

We will be as transparent as possible to bring everyone up to date at any step of the process. We will keep you informed during the production progression: updates and pictures of the Gyroscopes, packaging, the process... and more! Follow us for the most up to date information.

With your help, the first production of the SONIC BOOM GYROSCOPE will be a success! We are putting great efforts to fulfill our promises and to deliver you a product that will exceed your expectations!

Thanks for your support!
