 About Aquatoy, Inc.

The AquaDisc revolution began when inventor Wink Thorne was participating in a dolphin communication study.  He spent hours in the dolphin tank using a bowling ball to play underwater catch with a dolphin named Joe.  This inspired Thorne to create a toy that would enable people to play games underwater as well and he created the first AquaDisc prototype as part of his Senior Design project at Stanford University. Today’s AquaDisc is the result of many years perfecting the product. Thorne’s unique, patented hydrodynamic technology achieves amazing performance below the water’s surface.  Aquatoy was founded in April 1999.  Thorne holds 18 US patents.
