The Orbital2 is a state of the art device that was developed in order to eliminate the use of keyboard operations in the creative industry. In order to create an environment where creatives have increased productivity & efficiency while also reducing their fatigue and stress, we implemented a unique mechanism not found in existing products, bringing them all into one joystick. It can be placed on any surface, is designed for ambidextrous use & its ergonomic design notably reduces the chance of getting tenosynovitis. It is also fully customizable to the user (this is done on the accompanying application), making every O2 unique to the creatives. Through these commitments to Orbital2, we aim to make the daily lives of current and future creatives a lot more easy, efficient and fun. To make all our creativity more profitable, we will deliver the Orbital2 into a world that very much needs it.

Hollywood Film Artist, Jason Horley tried out the O2. He is a UK concept art artist, who was in charge of the whole Harry Potter series and other world famous films. He has worked on over 50 world famous films.

He worked on a piece called "Dino Cave" for BRAIN MAGIC using the O2. Through working with the O2, he commented on how it contributes to the creative work environment.

Works
-  The Harry Potter series
-  Star Wars - Last Jedi -
-  Hercules
-  Tarzan

The O2 offers 32 – 256 types of shortcut key and button operations for any creative software. You only need to manage three functions, “tilt”, “roll” and “push”. Control is right at your fingertips. Depending on the way you combine these functions, you can assign several hundred commands. Moreover, you can conduct complex operations continuously by combining three movements, similar to how you would execute special moves in fighting based video games.

 With the Flat Ring, in addition to keyboard shortcuts, you can also assign items to the on-screen menu overlay. Using this feature makes it possible to assign functions to a switch all at once, saving you time and streamlining the process.

After numerous experiments, we landed on this ergonomic design that allows creators to work in a comfortable position without ever overexerting themselves. As you can see from the images below, it does not require the use of more than just 2 fingers.

Orbital 2 is compatible with a wide range of applications and you can switch between apps seamlessly. And because of the light ring, you will never be confused as to which app your Orbital 2 is currently working on. You can fully customize the LED light and attach certain colours to all your application profiles.

 Orbital2 Specifications

 In today’s world, the images of the future which science fiction writers have portrayed are indeed turning into reality. An AI program beat professional Shogi/Chess player, created a movie teaser, and even published a novel. However, we still believe in the creativity that humans possess. Only humans can create something that truly appeals to us. Work with passion in any field and that work will be remembered and treasured by people for generations to come. Having said that, we are limited both physically and temporally. So, we need to eat to keep moving and sleep to fully utilize our brains. Time we spend with our friends and family are equally important. We developed a device that champions a programmers’ ability and allow them to work ceaselessly and at the same time enrich their lives. O2 is a next-generation device that expands the developers’ skills, reduces physical exhaustion as they revel in their creative moments. It is our wish as BRAIN MAGIC to reduce the workload of programmers who will lead us to a world filled with amazing pieces of work that make our lives richer. The development of O2 could not have been possible without the hundreds of people who believed in us and believed in our philosophy which can be found on “Makuake”, a Japanese crowdfunding website.

                                                                       

Risks and challenges

Thank you so much for considering our project.
Finally, we will describe the risks of this campaign.

The first risk is the price of O2.
We spent energy to select great parts selection, and think usability is important than productivity in terms of manufacture process. As a result of pursuing operationality, durability and compactness more than productivity without compromise, it became a product with a very high cost ratio.As a result of realizing high-end products convinced by professional creators, this price has been reached.

The second risk is the production schedule.
We are preparing with partner factory so that we would able to deliver O2 device to backers with smoothly. Since we have experience in product delivery, we are preparing to deal with various risks based on it.However, the risk of delays due to the unavoidable circumstances of the delivery schedule can not be reduced to zero.

Finally, we do not consider the project to be finished when we delivered them to everyone.Based on valuable comments received from everyone, we will repeatedly improve and update software and services.
We will evolve O2 to a more perfect and wonderful product.
It should include implementing new functions that have not yet been announced. However, it depends on everyone's support to what extent we can continue the project.

We hope that everyone share sympathy and understands these risks and our vision, and support the project to develop the best creative device.

For any supporters living outside of Japan, please be aware of your local import or relevant tax laws. Depending on which country you live in, you may be required to pay import tax or other tax on this item.
