Have you ever thought that the perfect dice doesn't exist? Well, we are here to tell you that we have created the PERFECT dice. GRAVITY DICE was created with the avid gamer in mind, who wants a unique feel, complete randomized rolls & to wow their opponents.
With all the plastic and cast metal dice out there, we noticed that none had complete randomized rolls and didn't feel unique in the hand. With some calculation and a lot of work we created what we believe to be (and hopefully you too!) to be the perfect dice. These aluminum dice have been precision CNC machined to aerospace tolerances & each pip has been mathematically calculated and drilled for perfect center of gravity and balance. After drilling, each die is Type II anodized, which is a hard coating that makes the die resistant to scratching & denting and prevents the color from wearing off. With proper care, these dice should last a lifetime and be the last set of dice you ever need!
Most dice out there are made from plastic or cast metal. Meaning, they are unbalanced because of air bubbles inside or uneven molds when casting. For example, Ultra Pro's knockoff of our Gravity Dice are Type I anodized so the color fades and chips off, they scratch and dent easily, and are not precise. If you have any of these dice, sounds like you need to make the switch!
The Evolution of Gravity Dice:
The Full Story:
Gravity Dice was started in 2004 at GWC Design school in Huntington Beach, Ca. where we initially came up with the idea of truly high precision dice with a higher randomization than regular plastic dice. After many struggles and a Kickstarter to help us along the way, we were able to achieve our true goal. We are proud to present these perfect balanced set of dice that have a unique feel and texture of their own to give you a sensation only Gravity Dice can fulfill.
Gravity Dice are CNC Machined dice that have been calculated to have a perfect center of gravity. We utilize the most advanced 3D modeling and simulation to bring you perfectly balanced dice. Through complex model algorithms we found a balance between great weight, center of gravity and exceptional style.
Unlike most traditional machined or molded dice we start with aircraft grade aluminum extrusions and then machine them down to be a perfect cube. After machining we decided on an initial whole depth for the six side of the dice which gave us best visibility, shape and aesthetics. Mathematical calculations are used to adjust the depth of all other holes to match the amount of material removed from the six side to be equal on all the other sides. Following those steps, we used a 3D modeling program to map out the center of gravity or COG. This allowed us to verify our calculations.
Once we had our balanced dice we looked at roll and bounce characteristics of the cubes themselves and decided upon chamfered edges to allow for more random rolls. What we ended up with are beautiful machined dice that seem to have a unique roll quality that you can truly feel. To top it all off, you can actually check the precision by being able to balance any dice on any edge as long as you have a flat level surface (a lot of fun).
But we did not stop at just dice! We decided that having a cool set of dice is only half the experience. We wanted our customers to feel the quality in both the packaging experience as well as the playing experience so we designed precision cases that will house your dice to both protect them between games and look elegant on your gaming table.
