What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

What is Free Flo Toys?

Free Flo Toys' goal is to connect all flow communities by introducing people with unique perspectives to the wide range of different flow arts to inspire new tricks and innovative toy designs from across the globe.

What is Halo Toy?

Halo combines the playfulness of a dexterity toy while doubling as a fashion accessory. 

  

 

A vast library of tricks is waiting to be discovered and mastered leaving you with limitless opportunities and endless fun. The jewelry aspect that Halo brings by being wearable to the fidget toy community means you no longer have to dig through your pockets or bags to get to play wherever, whenever.

  • PLAY  

Halo is a skill toy very similar to toys such as Begleri, Pen Spinning, Coin Manipulation, Bailsong, etc. The simple yet elegant design allows for a broad range of tricks. The ring size allows all fingers to pass through, while still giving the chain enough room to maneuver.

 

 

  • WEAR

Halo was designed to be a fashion accessory for anyone.

 

 

  •   FIDGET

Halo also fulfills the fidgeting needs you never knew you had.

Where did Halo come from?

Halo came from my everyday need to always play with something. It was always more than just fidgeting. I wanted to do tricks/stunts with objects all the time. I was that kid in school off in the corner flipping his pencil around and always trying to add to the tricks complexities. This unyielding desire to play with physics nonstop naturally lead me to get into and work for several toy companies. I play with just about every toy that requires dexterity skills.

Not many other toys share the same properties as Halo. The seamless loop of chain and the giant ring bring in some interesting new elements to the skill toy world. Since the ring is not fixed to the chain it allows almost all wrap rebounds to come out successfully. The chain being seamless also allows on the fly wrap sizing by adjusting the contraction and expansion of your hands. The chain length of Halo is completely up to the user. Changing the chain length allows different ways to play while allowing all the basics of Halo to transfer over as well.
