The Orbit1 is a tabletop electroplating contraption, targeted towards small businesses, hobbyists and makers, that allows you to coat any small object in a choice of four metallic finishes. The device, which is currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign, is fairly inexpensive and easy to run. It can even be paired up with a companion smartphone app in order to provide an easy and accessible metal-coating experience.

The app has a Smart Mode with recommended settings and an Expert Mode that allows the parameters of coating jobs to be adjusted manually.

The Orbit1 has a wide range of implications, and can be used by companies and makers to quickly prototype ideas. This should make it appeal to a wide range of potential customers.
