Hyperion Poi (one pair)

Please note that due to supply chain problems, poi orders may take up to 4 weeks to ship.

The poi are based on the 3rd generation of the Hyperion controller software, which builds on the Hyperion Hoop's 4+ years of development work and real-world use by thousands of hoopers worldwide. They're WiFi-capable and can connect to a wireless network or automatically create their own, allowing dozens of poi and hoops to be controlled together.

The browser-based interface lets you configure your poi and browse, transfer, and visualize patterns. A live pattern editor is also in the works. The poi web app is usable from Windows, Linux, Android, iOS and others.

  • Length: 9.5"
  • Diameter: 1"
  • Weight: 5.5 oz
  • LEDs: 45 per side, 90 per poi
  • Material: Polycarbonate and aluminum

The poi are constructed of impact-resistant 1" diameter polycarbonate tubing with CNC-machined parts made from aircraft-grade 7075 aluminum alloy.

Like the hoops, the poi are completely customizable and have storage space for thousands of patterns. They're currently shipping with around 1700 patterns pre-loaded. Patterns can be uploaded via USB, and a full pattern update can also be loaded via WiFi in 10-15 minutes. The poi include all of the software features of the Hyperion hoop, including scripting for choreography, IR remote control, and motion-reactive modes.

Unlike any comparable poi now on the market, the Hyperion poi feature a removable battery that can be changed in seconds, as easily as changing the battery in a flashlight. Typical battery life is 1-2 hours, and the poi use the same 14500 size rechargeable li-ion batteries as the Hyperion hoop.

CNC machined parts give the poi a smooth finish with no rivets or protruding screws. They're also generally dust and splash-resistant.

Package includes:

  • One pair of Hyperion poi
  • Adjustable UltraPoi brand leashes with swivels
  • Protective silicone caps for tips (with spares)
  • Pack of 4 rechargeable batteries with carrying case
  • Battery charger with wall adapter and car adapter
  • 44-key and 7-key IR remote controls (one each)

The poi can also connect to an optional polycarbonate staff adapter tube, sold separately.
