User customizable and reprogrammable LED flow toys. IR and Android wireless control. Create and add custom graphics, text and logos.

SpinFX blends technology and entertainment by offering LED display Hoops and Poi unlike anything you've seen before! Completely customizable and programmable, these props can display text, graphics and logos of your choice or your making!  Our team has been working hard to take LED performance technology to the next level. This is your chance to be a part of the revolution! 

After much hard work, we now have a design ready for small scale mass production. This is where we need your help. We are looking to fund the tooling required to do our first production run. Up to this point, all of our products have been hand assembled by our engineers. Your funding will be used to buy the tooling necessary to make automated assembly possible, cutting time and cost while improving quality. 

Our Products...

It offers more than 200 patterns, programmability and customization options, extreme durability, remote and Bluetooth technology currently working with our custom Android App. You may recognize this hoop as a "Hoop Daddy" creation and you would be correct. We have teamed up to bring you these now under SpinFX!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There are risks and challenges we face with the completion of our project. Here is how we plan to tackle these issues...

Assembly issues may arise. We will prevent this by building a small assembly run before the final order.

There are durability issues that sometimes arise with LED props. Through our many prototypes, we have intensely field tested and have come up with a set of best practices for making our products as durable as possible. We have designed products that can handle the shock and vibration of aggressive performance and use. We will also be offering a one year warranty on our products excluding physical damage.

FAQ

  • Although construction of the actual devices will probably take 1-2 months at most, the ship date is accurate due to the kickstarter completion, time involved in setting up assembly with our circuit board manufacturer, ordering materials, prototypes & testing. Once we've passed that major hurdle, then final assembly can begin.

    Last updated:
  • There's virtually no weight difference between the Phoenix and Phoenix HD. The LEDs themselves are extremely light weight.

    Last updated:
  • The Phoenix HD with 180 LEDs technically has a slower refresh rate due to the number of LEDs that need to be updated, so you see fewer updates "in the trails" compared to the standard 90 LED Phoenix. So it's a trade-off between higher resolution and faster update rates. They are both awesome, it's just up to you to decide crisper graphics (180) or faster refreshing (90). Also note, the 180 LED Phoenix HD Hoop can be set to 90 LED mode - the best of both worlds!

    Last updated:
  • The more LEDs that are used, the more battery that is used. The other major factors are image and color. If you have an image that uses a ton of LEDs, or a lot of white then the battery will go faster. That's the same for any LED hoop.

    Last updated:
  • Kickstarter policy does not accept returns. We are committed to work with you to ensure your complete satisfaction and understanding of product features.

    Last updated:
  • The $200 reward offer including Custom Hoop is Non-LED adult hoop made from 100 or 150 psi polyethylene tubing with choice of colors. We will contact you after the project duration is over to inquire about your options.
