Twista Fire Poi at Home of Poi

Poi

What is poi? Poi, (plural is also just “poi”, and not “pois”), is a Maori word meaning ball on cord. Poi was first developed by the Maori of New Zealand, and were used by both sexes. The women used poi to keep their hands nimble for weaving, and the men used it as a training tool for battle.

Since then, poi has drastically changed. It has taken on many forms, and has been influenced by the martial arts, and several more modern performance arts.
In the more recent past, poi has been influenced by the glow stringing/sticking rave culture. Many new moves, (such as orbitals), have been brought to poi through this influence.

There are many different types of poi.
Sock poi, cone poi, flag poi, veil poi, fire poi, sparkle poi, club poi, and contact poi, just to name a few. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks. Fire and sparkle poi are most dangerous, while fabric poi are the most benign.

Poi is a branch of the flow arts, and is useful in reaching the flow state. It’s uses range from physical therapy, to fitness, to recreation. Poi offers phenomenal health benefits. Poi can strengthen hand-eye coordination, improve awareness, and possibly even raise IQ by strengthening the corpus callosum. So go, get a pair!!!

Podpoi by Flowtoys

Flowtoys has done it again. Podpoi have got to be the best LED poi ever created.

Features:
• full color
• many modes
• infinitely adjustable
• bright
• lasts all night
• usb rechargeable
• non-toxic
• conscious design
• super durable
• lifetime warranty

Made of soft and supple silicone, (that won’t yellow and can be thrown in with your laundry or dirty dishes when it does need cleaning), with a hi-tech removable polycarbonate LED light capsule housed inside, these are as good as I can imagine poi being. If there were a better pair ever made though, it would be by Flowtoys.

The specially designed flowcord leashes with amazingly smooth swivels and seamless nylon “floop” handles practically disappear into the silicone pod. All with no painful hardware!

On top of that, Podpoi are microusb rechargeable, so no more having to carry extra batteries! Now charging your poi is as easy as charging your phone!

Podpoi have an intuitive single button interface that is very easy to use. You just press to change modes, and press and hold to access the individual modes options. You can even save 10 modes as favorites! Most modes last over 7 hours on a single charge, while some modes last over 50!
