ForeverSpin__ForeverSpin Spinning TopsForeverSpin Spinning Tops
Spinning tops have been around for a long time, but you’ve never seen one that is as precise, elegant and polished as this one. ForeverSpin is the first company dedicating all its resources to create the world’s greatest spinning top. As most spinning tops are made of wood or plastic, ForeverSpin is a more durable and luxurious option, made of high-grade stainless and available in 3 finishes: polished stainless steel, brushed stainless steel and triple coated in 24K gold. The result is a mesmerizing and beautiful spinning top that can be enjoyed and passed on to generations to come.

Whether you’re bored at work, busy in a brainstorming session, need a distraction or looking for a fun game with friends or family, ForeverSpin will take you to a simpler time with an endlessly fun game.

ForeverSpin Spinning Top is available for pre-order on Kickstarter.com starting at only $19. Each ForeverSpin is manually packed and checked to ensure it’s perfectly balanced. See more at foreverspin.com Buy it here

Fluux LiquiMetal
Have you ever bought something that doesn’t necessarily provide any particular function, but is just totally so awesome that you had to have it? Fluux LiquiMetal is exactly that. Although, I wouldn’t call it without a function, LiquiMetal provides you with a momentary distraction, something to gaze into, relaxation when you’re having a long stressful day.

So what is LiquiMetal, exactly?
LiquiMetal is an object that uses Ferrofluid, a liquid which becomes strongly magnetized in the presence of a magnetic field, to create suspended color shifting shapes. Made from glass and anodized aluminum, LiquiMetal can sit on your desktop in one of two positions to provide you with endless entertainment.

Fluux LiquiMetal_
Since Ferrofluid relies on magnet to change its shape, the strength of a magnet effects the density / fluidity of it. With your LiquiMetal you’ll get one or two powerful magnet wands that you’ll wave over LiquiMetal to create different shapes. See it in action in this video:

LiquiMetal is available for pre-order on Kickstarter.com. It’s already been over 300% funded (for an obvious reason!), so we can already tell this fun object is quite a hit! You can get yours starting at $55 Buy it here
