A Spinning Top With Hidden Motor, Gyroscope And Battery That Spins For Over 4 Hours

"Pretty cool, right? You're all fired."

These are several videos introducing the $49+ LIMBO, a seemingly ordinary spinning top that has a motor, gyroscope and battery hidden inside that allow it to spin for over four hours on a thirty minute charge (also available in a $299 World Record kit that can spin over 40 hours). Amaze your friends! Use it as an Inception style totem to know you're not inside someone else's dream! Of course you are though -- you're in my dreams. NIGHTLY. "Go on." We meet in a moon-soaked meadow shortly after midnight -- we're both topless, the moonlight reflecting off our perfect bodies like two Roman sculptures. "My my." I'm carrying a Thompson submachine gun, and you, a ninja sword." Wait, what?" IT'S A BLOODBATH.

Keep going for three videos, the second of which tests the top's spinnability on various surfaces, the third detailing its construction.

Thanks to hairless, who informed me his totem is a POG slammer, which I plan to steal and analyze so I can sneak into his dreams.

    I can't think of a single thing better to spend $49+ on.

    Anyone remember those forever-tops that sat on a powered magnetic base and would spin as long as it had power?

  • Bling Nye

    Some say it's still spinning to this day.

    Thousands of years of human ingenuity leads to...this.

  • MustacheHam

    Hey even small things inspire larger and more amazing things. Who knows, this might inspire some form of magnetic pull air craft using similar tech. >3>

  • Ollie Williams

    Yes, because this is clearly the height of our achievement as a species.

  • The_Wretched

    Cool! I bet that thing works as a massager too.

  • Douchy McDouche

    We're both thinking about genitalia, aren't we?

  • Jenness

    Pretty much.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Well fuck. Now I want one.
