The engineers from AltDynamic are returning to Kickstarter to launch their 16th special campaign. Orbiform Mini. They are made from different types of metals including Titanium, Copper and Steel mathematical shapes roll smoothly like a ball without being a circle. Early bird pledges are now available for this special project from $19 or £17 (according to current exchange rates).
Copper: Maximum Weight: 6.31 oz, 178 g, Minimum Weight: 1.66 oz, 47 g
Stainless Steel: Maximum Weight: 5.6 oz, 158 g, Minimum Weight: 1.45 oz, 41 g
Titanium: Maximum Weight: 3.2 oz, 90 g, Maximum Weight: .85 oz, 24 g
“An Orbiform is a shape whose closed curves produce continuous width. A 2D Orbiform and a circle can both be rotated between two parallel, fixed lines and remain perpendicular to both lines in any direction, as shown in the figure below. Interestingly, the length of the circle’s perimeter and Orbiform can all be calculated by the equation pi * D = circumference.
An orbiform is a shape whose closed bars produce a continuous width. A 2D Orbiform and a circle can both be rotated between two parallel, fixed lines and remain perpendicular to both lines in any direction, as shown in the image below. Interestingly, the length of the perimeter of a circle and an Orbiform can both be calculated with the equation pi*D=circumference.
Assuming that AltDynamic’s fundraising project successfully raises its pledge goal and the project is progressing well, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around October 2022. To learn more about the AltDynamic Orbiform Mini project, watch the promotional video below.
“The 3D Orbiform is an analogue of the 2D case. It is rotated on its axis of symmetry to create a variable shape. The 3D Orbiform can be placed inside the cube in any way and at the same time, touching all six faces as part of its width. Many think that a circle or a circle with the same width, but it is not. Leonardo da Vinci did not know about the continuous growth of the Orbiform, even when he used its shape. It would take another 257 years until the continuous growth of Orbiforms was realized and proved mathematically by Leonhard Euler. “
“This shape can roll as a sphere, even if it has points, edges and not bends. The main difference, between the Orbiform mass is not in the center as a sphere, so it cannot continue to roll unless there is a force.
