Why Spinning Tops?

For centuries, young and old alike have been captivated by the nostalgia of spinning tops. The concept has gone unchanged, but the following has grown with the age of precision machined spinning tops. With increasing spin times these complex designs became collectable items. 

We wanted to take spinning tops to an entirely new dimension, creating a new experience for users while keeping the benefits, helping to boost creativity, and enhance focus.

Perfect for any atmosphere

What kind of Spin Time can I expect?

Precision spin tops on the market today can range anywhere from 2-15 minutes depending on the top and user skills. 

After following our instructional video below, beginners can expect 10-20 minutes. After some practice, more advanced users can expect spin times of 30-45 minutes.

How does it Levitate?

Manufacturing 

When we set out on our journey we knew we had to partner with the right manufacturing team. We are proud to say that our Co-Founder Caili is a member of a family owned manufacturing plant on the forefront of levitation technology. They have previously manufactured for some of the largest levitating Kickstarter projects ever launched giving us the utmost confidence in their ability to help bring our project to life.

Our Vision

We set out to change the game of levitation. Falling in love with the aesthetic of levitation early on, we wanted to find a way to make the experience interactive. Most levitating products, although beautiful to look at, are set in a space and forgotten about over time. Our design is intended for day to day play, old and young alike will enjoy spending time spinning Infinity Top! We understand our dream could not come true without the support of our backers, so we wanted to give our supporters the best possible price. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

Prototyping and Design

Infinity Top is the result of over a year of research and prototyping. We started with some existing platforms, using technologies like laser cutting and 3D printing. Here are a few of our previous designs.

Risks and challenges

While we have worked hard over the past year to ensure launch success and feel as though we are in an incredibly promising spot, like with any project, there may be unforeseen delays or road bumps that can alter our course slightly.

We have the utmost confidence in our manufacturing team based on their previous work with extremely successful levitating Kickstarter projects (Mars Speaker, Flyte) and work closely with them day in and day out.

However, some unforeseen challenges include but are not limited to tooling, packaging and distribution, and manufacturing tweaks along the way.

As with any metal on metal product there is the potential for wear and tear. Since Infinity Top was specifically designed for interaction we know our backers are going to love playing with and spinning our tops. We will be looking to our backers for feedback as we finalize the design.
