The UFOrb: A Quantum Ballistic Saucer

$13,931

202

The UFOrb is our third keepsake container design, following two previous successful Kickstarter projects. The UFOrb's main body and standard dome are made from aerospace aluminum alloy 6061-T6511 on a state-of-the-art computer controlled precision lathe. The legs are machined from stainless steel.

Each UFOrb comes with a black O-ring, which helps seal the container from moisture, and removable padded foam on both the top and bottom of the container to keep your possessions safe. Also included is a single alien occupant to help navigate your craft.

Reward includes your choice of body color, aluminum dome color, and style and color of alien. Add-on upgrades to dome include various metal options which are not anodized.

The Aliens measure about 9/10 of an inch tall. The UFOrb stands about 1-3/4" tall. The saucer body measures about 2-1/2" in diameter and the dome is about 1-5/8" in diameter.

What will you keep in your UFOrb?

Please note, the UFOrb:  

  • is NOT intended for children (choking hazard).
  • is NOT childproof and shouldn't be used to hold medication.
  • is NOT waterproof; it is only water-resistant.
  • is NOT FDA compliant and is not designed for food storage.
  • color/anodizing will chip/scratch if contact occurs with sharp or hard objects.

This is not a children's toy, therefore not intended for children 12 and under.

Brass can contain up to 4% lead. This applies only to the UFOrb brass dome upgrade.

The UFOrb is made in the U.S.A.

Risks and challenges

We've been producing precision parts and products for our manufacturing customers since 1995. In 2014 we launched our first Kickstarter project to produce "The Orb" which reached 1020% funding... wildly exceeding our expectations. All rewards successfully shipped on-time. Our second Keep'n-it project was successfully funded and has been manufactured and is currently in secondary operations and nearing shipping. We bring the same level of commitment and integrity to this, our third project, The UFOrb.
