The Orbitar, a new multimedia musical instrument rooted in the ancient art of poi spinning, utilizes technology to combine play, movement, and music, into a contagiously fun and undeniably good-for-you skill toy. As an extension of the body and a magnifier of our movement, the Orbitar enables you to create a universe of live audio and visual compositions, one orbit at a time.

As a musician, designer, acrobat, and entrepreneur, Kate Riegle-Van West is focused on integrating corporeality and multimedia technology to push the boundaries of performance art, play, instrument invention, and holistic healing.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
