The Remote and XL models use a remote control to reset and restart Sync Mode from the beginning so multiple props can join in and sync their changes together. It is truly breathtaking to watch!
FutureStaff Shuffle: Standard build with click-through modes that autoplay the patterns continuously every 6 seconds. Turn the lights off and on again to change modes.
FutureStaff Remote: Adds a custom 7-key remote so you can control the graphics, select color palettes, save your favorite patterns and control changes in time to a beat.
FutureStaff XL: Twice as long as normal FutureStaff Remote with twice the lights. Uses 3 drawing modes to take advantage of the extra length: Stretch, Mirror Top, and Mirror Bottom. Comes with a custom 7-key remote control.
By clicking the FutureStaff on and off again, or by using the remote control (XL & Remote only), you can cycle through to the next Mode in the following order. Upon start up of each mode the patterns start a 6 second autoplay. Use the remote control to stop, save, and alter patterns, speed, and colors.
- Motif – Inspired by traditional art motifs with a splash of 8-bit iconography. Dynamic colors and effects layer to create endless variations and unbelievable trails.
- Waveform – Geometric waveforms produce mind-bending patterns that look great in orbitals and tight spins. Consumes very little power so your battery lasts longer.
- Motif Chaining – Stitches Motifs and Waveforms together into a repeating chain to produce endlessly fresh visualizations and never before seen combinations.
- Galaxy – A smooth and constant rainbow ripple to allow for mellow moods and flow-focused routines. Hypnotic and calming, whether still or in motion.
- Saved Presets – Only in FuturePoi Remote and FuturePoi Remote XL. Save your favorite Motifs and Waveforms and this mode will let you Shuffle them. Seamlessly cue your next Saved Preset to a beat or on command.
- Sync – Both lights can display the same patterns, colors, and changes in sync. Plays back the same sequence each time. Can be used to sync many pairs of props at once!
- Flames – (an XL only mode) A flame pattern that captures the essence of fire spinning. This mode is only a single flame pattern.
