Infinity Levitating Spinning Top

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2018-01-03

Experience a modern twist on traditional spinning tops with the Infinity Levitating Spinning Top. This spinning top levitates forever, as long as you plug it in. It either spins on the practice platform or in mid-air. Using patented levitation technology, Infinity stays afloat without restricting its spinning motion. In addition, spin times vary depending on your skill. Beginners can expect 10 to 20 minutes of spin time while advanced users can expect up to 45 minutes. The spinning top comes in three materials: aluminum, stainless steel, and brass. Each material offers a different density. Likewise, the heavier spinning tops levitate closer to the platform. You can also choose from two platform materials: brushed aluminum and black anodized. Furthermore, spinning tops offer many benefits like increasing focus and boosting creativity, making Infinity an ideal desk companion or display piece.

When will the next update be? Are things pretty much on track at this point for the tops being shipped out in April?

I appreciate the update, Adam. It sounds like you are on top of things. I am looking forward to seeing the packaging you come up with and to seeing the survey. Good luck on manufacturing and fulfillment!

Thanks for touching base with us Kip. We have been back and forth with manufacturing quite a bit the past couple weeks and now have a solid deal put together for the shape and style of the packaging. This week we are working out the final design for the graphics/text. There has been a lot more going on too! We will send out an email tomorrow with more information including the survey and detail on how we will manage additional tops for any backers who were looking to add multiple materials.

Any news to report on when the survey will be coming out? Have you figured out packaging?

Hello Michael, Good question. First it's important to note that all of the spinning tops levitate above the platform with brass at about 1/4 inch and aluminum at about 1/2 inch. This being said, there is no contact friction for any of the tops and all of them are subjected to the same amount air resistance. Although it seems true overall that the aluminum top spins for less time, the most noticeable effect of the materials is on the spin feel. The aluminum top is easier to get spinning quickly whereas the brass top for example is more of a steady twisting motion. Both are quite enjoyable to spin - but just to give you an idea, I have recorded spin times well over an hour with the brass spinning top.

Can you comment on the spin times among the various top materials? Denser materials spin longer, but since the brass and stainless steel drop lower down than the aluminum, they might encounter too much friction on the practice platform while initiating spin, thus losing too much energy in the process. Therefore, although aluminum won't spin as long once initiated, does its greater distance from the platform allow the user to generate more initial spin due to the larger hand movements that higher spin initiation is going to generate?

So close to $10K! We've got to break the barrier.

Did you guys post this to the Pocket Top Talk group on Facebook? Well, if you didn't, I did, so you're about to get 5,000 people to check this out!

Thanks for your comment and your support! There will be a way to purchase additional tops after the Kickstarter ends through our survey. We will add this to the FAQs to clear up any confusion.

Will there be any way to purchase additional tops, either as a part of the kickstarter or afterwards?
