Anti-gravity toy / Children's toys

Anti-gravity toy

Present interactive toys’ lack of difficulty level reduces parents’ inclination for participation. Our product raises complexity by designing a special track, which turns the kinetic energy of the rolling ball into the potential energy. The theorem is to roll the ball inside the track by swing it back and forth; with a proper force, the rolling ball is possessed of centrifugal force that can make the turn. The right swing angle can reduce the friction force and consumption of the kinetic energy, and achieve an anti-gravity phenomenon to move the rolling ball upwards along the track. The two-way play is fresh and new for people with any age.
