ZipChip Is A Pocket-Size Frisbee That Can Be Thrown Up To 200 Feet

Like Frisbees, you can throw the ZipChip over long distances, allowing you to use it to play outdoor games with friends and pets alike. Unlike regular throwing discs, it’s designed to fit in your pocket, ready to be pulled out and thrown into the air any time you get the urge.

Measuring just 2.5 x .5 inches (diameter x thickness), you can carry it at all times, giving you a potential source of amusement any time you need to make room for play. Bored at the office, need a little recreation? Play a game of catch across the office floor. Want to give your dog a little exercise at the park? Make him chase after the darn thing. Want to get into a pissing contest with other dudes at a party? Put some money on the line and bet on who can throw it at the furthest distance.

Unlike Frisbees, the ZipChip is made from a soft and flexible elastomer material, so you (or your dog) can catch it without worrying about breaking a finger (or chipping a tooth). Despite the small size, it’s a capable flyer, too, able to skim the air at distances of up to 200 feet (probably more if you’re strong and have the technique down). Instead of using a backhand throw, though, it’s meant to be launched using a forehand throw, with the domed side up. The best part is, it’s designed for stable flight, allowing you to control the path and distance once you get a good feel for how to maximize the spin and tweak the toy’s throwing angles.

A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for ZipChip. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $7.

    thats pretty crazy that this thing go fly 200 feet or more! i like that its made of a more soft material so it doesn’t hurt when you catch it, or break when you drop it. i can imagine having a blast with my dogs with one of these. this one actually looks glow in the dark, is it or can it be? if not anything, could just paint it with some glow in the dark paint. kids would have a lot of fun with these and it looks like a good, but practical, workout too! its pretty small which is cool, and i see keys in the image. can it be hung on a keychain too? imagine how well and far one of these would go if you skipped it across water haha (think pool of course so you don’t lose it!)

    this is so neat! i just want to find one of these that actually can come back to you, like a boomerang. next think you know, we’ll be putting a GoPro on it and using it as a Spying device! at first i thought it was a hockey puck, and looking at the pics and materials it actually slightly looks like similarly durable material.

    Pretty cool Frisbee toy. Be careful with the dog though, because some dogs will eat anything – even if they aren’t hungry – dogs can be crazy. This gadget is worth seven bucks just to have some fun at the office, just stand up in your cubicle and throw it across the room to see if your friend can catch it. Yes, you’re supposed to be working, but what better way to take a little stretch out of your seat now and again. This is a cute toy for kids and adults – not sure about you doggies though, sorry!
