ASTROJAX is a fascinating game all about action, rhythm and your own personal style. Three balls with special metal weights inside connected with a string is all you need to perform the most amazing tricks. Let them orbit around each other and try to invent new swinging patterns. At night it gets even more exciting with this light-up version.
Astrojax was invented by the American physicist Larry Shaw. While still at graduate school Shaw discovered the basic principle of Astrojax while playing with hex nuts and dental floss in a physics lab.
Intrigued by the complex patterns this simple arrangement created, he started to develop the idea. What first looked quite simple was actually very hard to solve mathematically. It took almost two years and hundreds of prototypes before Shaw decided on a model and had the principle patented.
Finding the right company to produce the toy was the next hurdle. Like many other breakthrough inventions, Astrojax was not understood by the large established toy companies since it didn't fit in their standard categories. Shaw formed a toy company himself which produced Astrojax before he finally met a partner with a record in making and promoting unusual and innovative motion toys.
Astrojax wins prestigeous toy awards in the United States and already has three different categories in the Guinness Book of Records
