We all have spinning tops that we love and use frequently, of course, but what purpose do these tops serve other than letting us know if we are suspended indefinitely in a dream state? Now there is a top that does much, much more. It's called Mr.Alpha top, and it is 0.58% of the way to its Kickstarter goal of £5,000. The Swiss Army knife of tops, it comes equipped with a flashlight, knife, bottle opener, screw driver, and "scratcher," for scratching lottery tickets and things. And it spins, because it's a top. But if that's not enough spinning for you, check out this other crowdfunding campaign, the FibRot, which is trying to raise $30,000 on Indiegogo.
What a day for people who really like stuff when it spins, for whatever reason.
