Posted:Hello HOP fans. I wanted to drop by and introduce you to our new LED glowsticks the Ultralight.

Non-Https Image Link


The Ultralight is a modular LED glowstick with 4 RGB LEDs. It features independent control for the top and the bottom (2 buttons) and works with all your existing modular LED glowstick gear. The independent control and the ability to choose your own colors lets you personalize your show like never before and lets you play with thousands of combinations.





We hope to have these for sale at home of poi very soon. Samples are being sent to them for product testing. If you can't wait until then you can find them on our website.
Thanks!

Posted:They look like flowlights to me..

From the way people are spinning in the vids they look heavy. How much does each unit weigh?

How much will they cost?

Posted:Just to show you how different they are crazy.
Here is a picture of the nine display options. The tenth option is a demo of these nine that cycles to a new one every 10 sec.
Since there are two buttons and you can control the pattern on the inside and outside I turned the inside off so that only one pattern is shown.
This is all taken on the first mode which is the 6 color custom mode. For the first 4 modes of the Ultralight, you can choose the colors that you want to use. The colors here are Red, green, blue, yellow, aqua, magenta in that order.

Posted:I turned on the inside and outside for these and chose different display options.
The inside and outside are both on the same color mode, 6 color, but you can have them on any of the 10 color modes and choose any of the 10 display options for each color mode.

Posted:I'm making the assumption that you think you came up with the idea of two colors exchanging when the reality is that the patterns were added due to the popularity of the (no longer available) pro-series LED poi, which are based on the light up and juggle All-light.

Additionally, we couldn't use the term stutter fade because we didn't want to charge $500 for a pair.

I read somewhere that Fuzion was an appropriate term when marketing things that people can afford. ;-)

But since you like it so much, here is another pic for you.

Posted:Well they say imitation is sincerest form of flattery ...and those patterns really do look great! Please don't miss-understand me here; I genuinely think the props you guys are producing look fantastic! They do look like still look like flowlights to me though:




Why would using the words 'stutter fade' suggest you should charge $500 for a pair of your toys? If you can make something of comparable quality and feature set to Hyperlights for less than $500 a pair and sustain a business on it then I say go for it! Competition is a very healthy thing for all the spinners out there smile

For the record, I made the first of what I called a stutter fade in 2005:

...I only wish I'd had the means to bring it to the market sooner.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of your gear in the flesh this summer smile

Posted:Flowlights are the standard form factor that everyone uses. I think everyone likes the fact that they don't have to rebuy more equipment to use Ultralights.

Ultralights feel completely different in your hands and look completely different when you spin them. There is no way to confuse the two if you had both in your pocket.

UltraPoi was founded to fill the gap between generic LED and rave toys and custom professional lights. The Ultralights were designed to fill what we felt to be a missing link in the LED glowstick market. When our Ultrapoi are released, the will fill another link and you will also understand why the Ultralights are designed the way that they are.

For the record lightupandjuggle has been around since 1994. Don't know when the came up with the all light, but i believe it was before 2005. Also Fuzion does not look like your pic, the transition isn't as abrupt.

I also hope to see more of our products this summer, including Ultrapoi when they are released. I did see a pair of hyperlights at Ultra this year, so congrats on getting a few out into the world. ;-)

Posted:I hope these make it to HOP soon, because i recently bought a pair directly from Ultrapoi.com and they are just amazing. You can set them up to make almost literally any color combo you can think of, or set them to one of the color choices that go through all the colors. Also the fact that you can set different patterns on the inside and out just makes them even better than i imagined. Just as strong as flowlights with a tad bit more weight (nothing really noticeable). On top of all this functionality they're super bright and the battery life for me has been amazing I've been using the same batteries for almost 2 weeks now with them on about 1 hour a day.All that said the only "problem" I've found is that it's almost impossible to turn the top light on and off inside a crystal case with mass on it. Definitely not a deal breaker though cause you have to do the same thing with flowtubes anyways. Overall an amazing product definitely worth buying.

Sorry for the paragraph.

Posted:Hey Guys,

Wanted to add a great update to the Ultralight LED Glowstick

Trick Concepts has created a new modular staff system that can use the brand new full color Ultralights from Ultrapoi.com as well as your flowlights that you have collected over the years!

It is a much more sturdy system for your lights as I own them both...It also breaks down into 3 pieces and uses Metal peices so you wont have your plastic connectors breaking like I have experienced in the Flowtoys system.
