Warning: Please be careful not to bounce the orbit off your body at high speeds (e.g. Arm Wraps, leg wraps, etc.). Hitting the orbit on your body or any hard surface can cause injury to yourself and damage the orbit resulting in a broken housing.
Changing Batteries: When you need to unscrew the housings to change batteries, use a common size (#2) Philips-head screwdriver. Smaller screwdrivers like the ones used for sunglasses and other small items will damage and strip the screws.
With over eight years of experience in the LED microlight industry, we've expanded the possibilities of orbit light shows once again by building our most ambitious orbit ever.
Sealed in a durable, easy-access glossy casing, two of the orbit arms are elongated to create aunique second ring of light.
Simply click your orbit on and choose one of 10 dazzling color modes. Spin it to music and your orbit adds a new dimension to your experience as you make the lights follow, spiral out from, and crash into the beat!
Each Galaxy Orbit includes 4 independently programmable microlights, 23 brilliant colors, and 3 brightness levels per color, giving you maximum flexibility to customize any light show you desire.
Enjoy orbiting on your own, take it to a party, or use it anywhere dark that needs a light show. Team up with your friends and spin your Galaxies to build a whole universe of light together.
If you’re a pro, Galaxy gives you everything you need and more, and if you’re new to orbits, start with the best! It’s easy to learn and fun.
We knew everything we wanted to accomplish with the Galaxy: Provide all the features, modes, and colors you’d need. Design a smooth, rounded, secure holder that’s easy to access, and make it glossy so the light can refract through it when it spins.
As we got further into development, we realized that all orbits have one thing in common...when you spin them, they produce one ring. The colors and patterns differ within the ring, but they are confined to a single circle effect.
With the Galaxy Orbit, we designed two longer and two shorter arms. This gives you an inner orbit and an outer orbit, which adds a completely new and exciting element to your lightshows.
We spent a lot of time testing and retooling to achieve the perfect aerodynamics for our exclusive Saturn Effect, and we know you’re going to love it.
All of your modes, colors, and brightness levels can be programmed via the Galaxy chips embedded with your 4 RGB LED microlights. The memory function ensures that even when you need to change batteries, all your favorite configurations are saved.
There are 10 dazzling display modes! 12-Color Sandbox mode (courtesy of our friends over at Futuristic Lights), Hyper Strobe, Ribbon, Tracer, Dots, Dash Dot, Three-Color Slow Fade, Rainbow Strobe, Rainbow Ribbon, and a Demo mode which cycles through each mode every seven seconds.
Simply click the lights on and each click moves you to the next mode. Press and hold for 1 second and release on any mode to turn off. Press and hold on any mode for 2 seconds to enter color programming.
Because each chip on the Galaxy Orbit can be programmed independently, and each individual color has a low, medium, or high option, you can get extremely creative with literally unlimited possibilities.
The Galaxy chip features 23 different colors and a BLANK color option, so you can add spaces between your colors to create new visuals.
Each color can be set to low, medium, or high brightness:
Our chips are made using high-intensity RGB LEDs and an 8-pin flash microcontroller with nanoWatt XLP technology (PIC12F1840). The design is based on our LED glove set chips, so you can use the Galaxy chip with glove sets too.
The best way to get to know your new orbit is in its default settings, and you can have a lot of fun with the preset colors we've chosen. When you’re ready to move on and program the modes and colors, please see our how-to video below:
In addition to setting colors for each mode, you can also use MASTER COLOR programming to create one set of your favorite colors to use across all 9 modes. If you ever want to wipe the chip clean and start over, you can MASTER RESET back to the default RGB colors.
Each Galaxy Orbit includes two CR1620 battery per chip. This is a standard battery that will last for several months (depending on use), is inexpensive to replace and easy to find. To access the batteries, all you need is a screwdriver to loosen the two screws that hold your orbit case together.
Some users may not even need the handles, while others may want to move up to our softer neoprene version.
