Each capsule light 2.0 features wireless control, kinetic awareness and an intuitive 1-button interface with many modes ranging from awesome trails to gorgeous mood lighting. Each mode is adjustable either in color, speed, brightness or pattern. Micro-USB charge-port, 6-70+hr runtime, battery life indicator and a variety of charging options make it a breeze to keep glowing during festivals and travel.
Designed by Flowtoys, these dragon discs are CNC-cut from polyethylene, and hand-assembled and finished to bring you a unique, highly durable and elegant staff accessory that feels amazing (and wows audiences). Each dragon disc has cut-outs that hold 3 flowtoys capsule lights. You will need 3 capsule lights per disc for your staff to roll evenly!
Each dragon disc comes assembled and ready to be installed on your 1" staff tubes. Simply push hard to get it on/off and the inner silicone washers will maintain a snug and secure fit, which can also be tightened if necessary.
Staff ends are 380g (with the disc); this is much lighter than a typical dragon staff, but the narrow 17mm shaft diameter (with grip) changes the rolling dynamic drastically, requiring almost 2x the number of rotations to roll down your arm, for a lighter staff that performs like a much heavier one, and it feels just amazing.
Note: This industrial-grade material does not come with a protective film like many end-use sheets like plexiglass. It comes to us with scratches on its surface from handling and though they are not noticeable at any distance, they are visible up close in certain lighting conditions. Surface scratches should be expected.
Also the disc's parts are CNC routed on a router used heavily for wood and other rougher materials and the edges may show imperfections from this low-precision tool. Most people will probably not notice, and they should not affect performance in any way.
The shape of the manta ray emerged as we were exploring the optimal interplay between strength, durability, required mounting points and minimal material weight, while designing with the fewest vector points possible. A few tweaks brought to life this inspiring and graceful animal with its iconic curves, the cephalic fins around its mouth, and the claspers on its tail.
The marine theme continued as the shape of the support discs took on the appearance of a whales' tale as they followed the lines of the primary disc, and the outermost support began to look like the metal reinforcement around the keyhole to a futuristic pirate's treasure chest.
We did not begin with the manta-marine theme in mind when we set out to develop the structure. As with many of our designs, we are their conduit for manifestation as we seek to solve mechanical challenges, while honoring the beauty and intelligence of nature. Call it the viral beauty of nature using us as their host ;)
We recommend getting a discounted capsule 2.0 remote, which is super useful for navigating and performing more complex functions that require a lot of button presses, especially for several props at once! Plus it’s fun to hand the remote to someone else, while you’re spinning, so they can VJ your modes.
