Begin the time-winding journey with Spintronics Act One. Get started building fascinating mechanical circuits as you solve 67 fun, challenging puzzles from beginner to intermediate difficulty.

Spintronics is a new game (ages 8 to adult) from the makers of Turing Tumble where players build mechanical circuits to solve puzzles. Players feel the pull of voltage and see the flow of current as they discover electronics in a tangible and deeply intuitive way, using the first physical equivalent of electronics ever built. It’s fun, fascinating, easy-to-learn, and irresistible to play.

Good Product

I think the Spintronics Product is Good, but because I couldn't use PayPal as I usually do for online purchases, without my consent or knowledge you passed on my details to SHOP PAY, because when I was on another site to purchase something, I just put in my email address an immediately they send a verify code to my Phone when I hadn't given them my Phone number. I am very upset about that. You are giving my personal information to third parties without my consent or knowledge. How dare you violate my privacy. I'm giving you a 2 star and that's just for the Spintronics Product. You need to provide PayPal in Australia and not be passing Private Personal information on to third Parties. I have deleted my unwanted Account from SHOP PAY. If I see my information elsewhere because of this, I will be taking further steps to report you to the authorities.

Great on so many levels!

Students are loving it. Learning without a Screen

I wasn’t sure how they would respond but the first group of students are having fun working their way through the stories and building circuits. We also use the Turing Tumble in the Lower school.

I gave this to our 8 year old grandson and he was completely absorbed for days. It makes him think in so many different ways as well as teaching dexterity and focus. Amazing on all fronts.

Awesome! My son loves it.

My son (8 years old) received Act 1 for Christmas. Then, he spent all his collected pocket money to buy Act 2; he couldn’t wait until his birthday in May. It’s really nicely made, with the story presented as a comic. He totally dives into it.

Hoogwaardig en leerzaam vermaak!

Het eerste bedrijf cadeau gegeven aan mijn zoontje voor zijn achtste verjaardag. Hij was er heel blij mee en is er nu hij ermee kan experimenteren ook heel enthousiast over.

De kwaliteit van de onderdelen ziet er goed uit, wel even oppassen dat je het touwtje van de "batterij" niet te ver uittrekt, anders werkt hij niet meer. Met wat gepruts is dat ook weer goed gekomen, dus kan er weer verder gespeeld worden.

Délai très long pour version française

Il est surprenant qu'en version française, l'Acte 2 soit dispo (et expédié suite à la commande 1+2) alors que l'Acte 1 (obligatoire) ne soit pas dispo avant le mois de Mai ! (mauvaise gestion manifeste des stocks)

Spintronics Act One was extremely popular over the holiday season and does not require Act Two for play. We appreciate your patience and hope for a better review once your actually play our games.
