Pocket Universe

Hello and welcome,

I'm Sam, inventor and creator of the Pocket Universe series.

These creations are a little fun, a little crazy, and in the words of just about everyone who's picked one up "This is really f*cking cool"

"It's like a kaleidoscope meets a lavalamp"

"I've heard enough"

 

Before we dive into exactly what the Pocket Universe is and how it works, let me tell you an origin story.

Like all good origin stories, it started as a dream.

I wanted to create from scratch. I wanted to try my hand at all phases of design, testing and manufacture. I want to own the entire process.

I set the bar high. I had expectations. I had standards. I would not sell anything I wouldn't happily buy myself.

And so was borne the Pocket Universe

It started with a vision. To create something to lose yourself in. Something simple that draws your attention, captures your focus, and makes you smile.

I began prototyping, testing and experimenting. I figured out what worked and what didn't. What I could make and what I couldn't.

I set quality expectations. I eliminated options. I rejected samples. I chose only the best bits, the best lights, the best reflections.

From the first opening of a custom fold out box, through the creation of your own sculpture, and the interactivity of your final masterpiece.

Every step has been perfectly engineered by me to bring out that feeling of giddy excitement as you try new things, learn new skills, and the feel  a strong sense of satisfaction as you complete a new challenge.

 

 

Step 1 : Creating your Squiggle

The first step in your Pocket Universe journey starts by unleashing your creativity.

Included are 6 coloured glowing wires ("Squiggles") in all the colours of the rainbow, with awesome sounding names:

Electric Blue, Retro Yellow, Green Machine, Orange Crush, Purple Haze, and Inferno Red

After much experimentation, I chose these specific wires for their flexibility, bendyness, and twistability. 

I discovered they hold internal forces very well, and from a simple stress such as rolling they would naturally form symmetrical shapes and intricate patterns.

I want you to do the same and discover your own creative 'flow' senses. I want each Pocket Universe to be a unique expression of its owner. Representing your own imagination, your own mind flow, and your own personality.

What shapes will you make? What shapes can you make?

How does each wire 'talk' to you as you bend and twist it?

What happens if you close your eyes, can you 'listen' with your fingers?

 

Wrap them around your hands, twirling in and out of your fingers. Start with a simple shape and watch it evolve. Start with a vision and try and create it. 

Maybe you will be inspired by mother nature to create a blooming flower, clouds, or crashing waves.

Let your imagination run wild. Draw inspiration from deep inside. Go down the abstract route. Can you represent a dance move or a yoga pose? 

Try creating a symbol for love, happiness or good fortune. Write your name or a number. Anything is possible.

 

Add just a touch of glue wherever wires touch to permanently fix your shape together. Use the included bread ties to avoid gluing yourself to your masterpiece. Maybe use a toothpick or a small piece of wire for those really complex shapes.

No matter how simple or complex your Squiggle is, it will look amazing.

 

Step 2 : Vibe Check

With your favourite shapes made, youre ready for step 2 in your Pocket Universe journey.

You unwrap a silver reflective cube. It's perfectly sized to pick up with one hand. It's not too heavy, it's not too small. 

You see yourself in the reflection on the front, you see the walls, you see the ceiling. You realise all the lights are on and you need to turn them off.

You seperate the base and note that it holds together using small magnets. It clicks back together with a satisfying CLACK sound. (Warning: Contains small magnets, do not eat)

You pick a squiggle, connect the USB plug and place it inside. Immediately it begins to glow and you feel the atmosphere change.

You turn it right-side up, holding it from the top. The base stays perfectly still. You give it a test shake and nothing happens. Exactly as you would expect.


Satisfied that it won't all fall apart you lean in close. You lean a bit to the left and a bit to the right, from above and below. With 5 visible viewing faces the Pocket Universe remains visible from all angles.

You find yourself crouching, leaning forward, stepping back and then getting closer. Peering in from every angle you can.

You can feel yourself being drawn in, you want to look closer, you want to see it all from every angle.

 


Now PAUSE

Right here, right now, in this moment.

Can you feel it? Like a moth drawn in to a light. You're curious, you're excited and you're fascinated. There's a sense of wonder, like you're discovering something new and never before seen.

Your curiosity is overwhelming. You want to know more. See more.

Thats the feeling. Of pure unadulterated and giddy childlike wonder. You can feel a large grin start to roll across your face, from ear to ear. You know you've made the best decision.
