Round Spinning Objects - Atmos and RSO collaboration!
From RSO: I met Reuben from Atmos Projects back in October 2020 to discuss an all-Singaporean collaboration over dinner at Mos Burger. This was unlike previous RSO collaborations, where correspondences were done remotely. The prospect of linking up with a local company appealed greatly to me because both parties could meet in person to discuss the CAD design, art direction and eventually split the load of assembly, testing, and shipping.
We both agreed to do a titanium yo-yo with removable caps as a throwback to some of the first yoyos we learned on. For the shape - We wanted to do a combination of elements from the Atmos Cloudberry and the RSO Bowl. The final product is a light weight organic return top that fits so nicely in the hand and has a beautiful titanium ring in play. The weight is adjustable with the included caps and o-rings, and is even further adjustable by swapping side effects.
Both Reuben and I thought Gravity was the aptest name for this project, simply because the yo-yo could be customized to play with a comprehensive weight range, akin to playing the yo-yo on different planets with varying gravitational forces. Want to play on the moon? Install the aluminum ultralights. Want to play on the sun? Throw in all the components.
