#1 Choice for 5/8 Smart Hoop - There is nothing that compares! 

Almost one year in the making, borrowed some features of the original ZL Hoop, gave some of its awesomeness to ZL Hoop Gen 2 (summer of 2017) and continued on it's journey to greatness! Hand made with love, passion, determination and continued commitment to push the technology to it's limits, bring innovation to each iteration and follow our vision to produce a product that is unique and different than what has been the norm in the industry. 

When designing the ZL Pandora 5/8, we wanted to strip it down of any unnecessary bloating, gadgets like joysticks, additional sensors, and other pieces, but rather put all the focus on the software and make sure all the features are functional and produce mesmerizing visual effects, using the LEDS as user display, using the remote to configure hoop and much more. We always thought this is the point of having a Smart LED Hoop. Not only you have lots of patterns but each is like a template and can be independently configured. Not only can you select dimness at the strip level but each pattern uses different levels of dimness to also add depth. Every mode is rich with additional options and settings making the Smart Hoop completely customizable to your preference, making each pattern completely customizable and that using only the remote. 

As for the weight we got inspired by super cars and quickly realized that to produce high performance, everything has to go, choice of materials need to be light weight. If a small battery weighs ~0.3 oz having over 4 already adds 1+ oz to the weight. This is how we achieved to push down the weight to almost the same as a day hoop.  Using 5/8 vs 3/4 this removes yet an additional ~3 oz off the weight. Step by Step we redesigned multiple times until we reduced every possible piece of the hoop, down to every screw and connection.

The ZL Pandora is loaded with a lot of configuration parameters. At it's basic level works like any other Smart Hoop, start it and the hoop will begin it's shuffle sequences. Remote and configuring the hoop is not required.

But when you want the power to control and create your custom show, this is when the ZL Pandora offers you the ability to configure just about anything on the hoop. All configuration is done via the 24 Key Remote. The hoop automatically saves everything you change and restarts right back where you left off. So when swapping batteries you are back to continue where you stopped.

We have created an interactive web app guide where you can learn everything about the hoop. The guide has a step by step approach and how to for just about anything with pictures, video's and visual cue's.

Use the guide as a cheat sheet, just as much as instructions for more complex settings. Once the hoop is configured to your style, no need for remote.
