Designed to encourage STEM-related thinking Spinpal has designed a laser cut marble run construction kit which enabling those interested to build an intricate marble run. The Orb Drop marble run kit is available in two different versions, Manual and Automatic. As the names suggest the automatic is powered by a battery and motor to offer continual motion while the manual version needs to be reset and triggered and will run for as long as you have ball bearings available at the top or the run.
The Orb Drop kit comes with everything you need to build your marble run and offers a unique twist connection system, mechanically locking components together eliminating the need for glue. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more and see the tracking action.
The creative team behind the Orb Drop marble run construction kit explain a little more about its inspiration, design and features. “To design and create high quality, performance driven, physics toys at an affordable price. Along with our passion for design and engineering, we have remained young at heart with the curiosity to develop toys. Physics has always been a science discipline that has captivated our team. Hopefully this inspiration allows us to introduce STEM related subjects to children of all ages.
Orb drop creates a great building and learning experience for its users. All who assemble an orb drop will be exposed to many unique areas: Hands-On Construction, Tools, Mechanical Fasteners, Materials (wood, plastic, metal), Dynamics, Kinetic Energy, Gearing, Electricity, Magnetism, and more.
The orb drop is the ultimate gift and perfect addition to any toy room, kitchen counter-top, living room table, night stand, or office desk. It is sure to start a conversation and capture the attention of all who see it in action.”
