Some people like to stare at an aquarium of fish while they brainstorm, but the maker of ForeverSpin prefers a spinning top. Mirrored, brushed, and gold plated are apparently ideal when bored, stressed, anxious, as a gift to a child, or just for some spinning competition fun. But for those who consider themselves to be deep thinkers, visionaries, and / or champions with some extra cash and an interest in finding out if tops really do enhance brainstorming sessions, there are the options of copper, aluminum, and titanium. Backers can choose their favorite element beginning at $19. Expected delivery is June 2014. For those who prefer blended elements that command a prettier penny, The Lambda campaign offers a brass-aluminum top with a ruby bottom that’s been known to whirl for up to 10 minutes.
For those who have some time to kill, here is an item that might bring some amusement for a while. The Lambda Top is a unique toy for the child in everyone. The body is made of brass and aluminum, but the tip is a perfectly smooth sphere that’s made of ruby. Its measurements and the ruby sphere tip enhance its spinning action, making it remain in motion for significantly longer than even the most impressive BeyBlade. The Lambda Top creator’s unofficial record is a 10-minute spin, and he posted the video on his campaign site. He offers backers a challenge to make theirs spin longer, record it on video, and submit it through the campaign site. Lambda tops out at $65 with an expected delivery of September 2014.
Ever needed to add some last minute items to your luggage when traveling? The Top Loader spinner suitcase has a zippered section accessible from the top, allowing people to add or remove items from their suitcase without having to lay it down on the ground. Last-minute packing is another huge advantage to this product for backers with time-management issues. Currently, only a carry-on size is available for purchase. This clever hamper on wheels comes in either black or silver and goes for $70 on Indiegogo with an estimated delivery date of August 2014. Top hopes to raise $27,500 in a 30-day campaign.
