Kinetic Light Newton's Cradle
The Kinetic Light Newton’s Cradle brings the classic 80s desk toy right up to date, with stunning frosted glass and hypnotic, colour changing LEDs.
Funny thing, fashion. A powerful force from a long-gone era can exert an equal force on another era, often several decades apart. So it is that after years of silence an iconic ‘CLACK’ that hasn’t been heard since the 80s is suddenly making the same noise today. And like today’s fashion – it feels oh-so-familiar, but with a twist.
What are we talking about? The Kinetic Light Newton's Cradle, of course. Classic icon of the 1980s, the original Newton’s Cradle would grace the desk of any self-respecting CEO – aptly demonstrating Newton’s laws of motion while simultaneously suggesting the presence of a ball-buster. Well thanks to a little modern jiggery-pokery the original (and best) executive toy is back. And it’s more hypnotic than ever.
Swapping the original’s chrome for stunning opaque glass, each of the five beads in the Kinetic Light Newton's Cradle is fitted with two LEDs. Switch them on and they’ll light up a cool blue. Set them clacking together and, just as their name suggests, they’ll change colour with each impact. Quite how depends on three different colour settings: flash, fade or colour cycle. Each one creates a different light effect when you set the spheres swinging. Take a look at all three in the video below.
So not only is the Kinetic Light Newton's Cradle a timely reboot of a classic desk toy, Newton’s hallowed principles of motion can now be enjoyed in glorious colour! We hope he’d approve.
