What Is Astrojax?

We invite you to learn more about Astrojax – three balls on a string. While games like the yo-yo have been around for hundreds of years, Astrojax is an entirely new kind of skill toy, a revolutionary concept with playing possibilities we are only just beginning to understand.

Every day Astrojax players around the world are discovering fascinating new tricks and moves that no one thought were possible. It’s- a game all about action, rhythm and developing your own personal playing style. We like to call it Jaxing.

Like most great ideas, Astrojax actually seems surprisingly simple: Three weighted balls attached by a piece of string with the middle ball freely moving. Yet the construction of Astrojax is very sophisticated. Each ball has a precision-machined metal weight inside the outer shell to provide maximum performance and smooth action while playing.

The fast spinning motion of the Astrojax balls is based on the physical principles of rotational dynamics. Even astronauts have tried it!

This website introduces newcomers to the unfolding universe of Astrojax and provides a platform for aj-enthusiasts around the world. Show off your new tricks! Astrojax Plus, Blue Saturn, Trick CD 2 – express yourself in free dimensions! Astrojax is sometimes misspelled as Astro-Jax, Astrojacks, or Astro-Jacks. The Correct Spelling is Astrojax.

Who Invented Astrojax

Astrojax was invented by the American physicist Larry Shaw.
While still at graduate school Shaw discovered the basic principle of Astrojax while playing with hex nuts and dental floss in a physics lab.
Intrigued by the complex patterns this simple arrangement created, he started to develop the idea. What first looked quite simple was actually very hard to solve mathematically. It took almost two years and hundreds of prototypes before Shaw decided on a model and had the principle patented.

Finding the right company to produce the toy was the next hurdle. Like many other breakthrough inventions, Astrojax was not understood by the large established toy companies since it didn’t fit in their standard categories. Shaw formed a toy company himself which produced Astrojax before he finally met a partner with a record in making and promoting unusual and innovative motion toys. Since the year 2000, the Swiss toy company ACTIVE PEOPLE has taken charge of production and worldwide distribution of Astrojax.

Astrojax wins prestigious toy awards in the United States and already has three different categories in the Guinness Book of Records.

The aj product family is gradually growing with SATURN the exciting light up version introduced in 2002 and V-MAX following in the same year, all in a completely new look created by Swiss designer Alex Hochstrasser.

More and more dedicated players are pushing the possibilities of Astrojax further, inventing new styles and tricks at a growing pace.

2003 is shaping up to become the big Astrojax year! Together with major distributors, Astrojax is being launched as Astrojax Weave made in Guatemala, from Australia to Finland, Hong Kong to Mexico – everywhere Astrojax will be swinging.
