Technically, LIMBO is a smart, self-balancing electric gyro, disguised as a beautiful CNC-machined spinning top that spins for hours.
Not technically, LIMBO is pure magic. Just imagine taking an innocent looking spinning top, that looks and feels like any other, give it a spin, waiting for it to fall, but instead of falling- looking at it spin for hours.
Just as the true value of a camera is not the camera itself, but the photos and moments it captures, the true value of LIMBO is its ability to amaze and elicit a WOW response from your surroundings.
Plus, watching LIMBO spin is really relaxing and enables you to take a tiny break from reality.
Spins on surfaces others won't and accelerates at will

Each LIMBO has its own unique characteristics, making it look, feel and spin a little differently. And when you hold each one, the contrast between them really accentuates just how special each one really is. We really want you all to experience the full LIMBO spectrum, so we made a special high-value Double, Triple and an 'All-4' reward for the collectors and the curious.
LIMBO doesn't need a special base- as you can see above, any tomato or coin will do :)
With that said, there are lots of advantages to having a LIMBO base:
1. An Elevated Experience. The base was designed specifically for LIMBO, with a surface that has just the right texture and right amount of friction, enabling LIMBO to spin (even more) beautifully and takes care of LIMBO’s point of contact, the tip.
2. Prevents LIMBO from Getting Lost. The base is your LIMBO’s uh, home-base space. And a home-base means you know where it is, displayed beautifully and prominently, not lost amongst all your table things.
3. Your LIMBO Spin-Pad. Unfortunately, most tables are not perfectly balanced :( That’s why after a few minutes, LIMBO often finds itself spinning on the floor. Or on some loud spot on the desk. It's still cool, and a side effect of a top that spins for hours. But we think spinning in place on the desk is even cooler. Maybe we’re just classy like that
Some base details: It’s made from high-quality ABS Plastic and crafted using CNC machining.
Our vision for this kit is to provide the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD experience in your own environment. It's perfect for special events when you feel the need to amaze your surroundings.
In addition to the WR mechanism, you'll receive a standard rechargeable mechanism for everyday use that works with the same casing.
1x Titanium top (casing only)
1x WR mechanism
1x standard mechanism (with a rechargeable battery)
4x non-rechargeable batteries (for the WR mechanism)
1x USB charging cable
1x LIMBO base (color of your choice)
* LIMBO WR can spin for over 40 hours, so you can set your own record :)
** Extra batteries will be available on our website when the campaign is over

We used some really advanced new algorithms to make sure LIMBO spins perfectly with maximum spin time. We also had to minimize the power used by the motor and the processor's frequency. We'll be sharing some more of the details and techniques behind the project in the campaign updates, so stay tuned!

* The LIMBO keychain comes will all LIMBO and LIMBO black models.
Risks and challenges
As with all Kickstarter projects, some risks are entailed. However, we've spent months testing many Limbo prototypes and perfecting our production line to ensure minimum risk.
We're dedicated to getting Limbo to all our backers on time and at the highest quality.
