This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
There is more than meets the eye when it comes to tops. Believe it or not, there is even science that explains how a top can increase creativity, enhance your thought process, educate you, and even make you feel at peace and relax. They believe it’s more simple than science! In a digital world, a “real interaction” matters. Especially a real interaction with real materials, in this case pure solid metals. Tops make for a great desk companion – perhaps you need a little brainstorming boost after long hours behind your computer or you simply want to de-stress a bit. Spinning tops made from Sterling Silver, Magnesium, Zirconium, and Damascus steel are now part of the ForeverSpin collection. ForeverSpin has taken the input from their worldwide customer base to create a new diamond-like carbon-coated spinning base that allows for the lowest amount of friction possible resulting in longer spins.
Spin a top when with friends, family or coworkers and you’d be surprised as to how much attention spinning tops create! Engage in some friendly competitions to see who is crowned Spin Champion! Best of all, since all of our spinning tops made from the same metal are identical, you can challenge anyone worldwide! A great original gift – really, when was the last time you thought of a “spinning top” – that is designed to last Forever. They love technology too, but unlike electronics that get replaced every few years, a true piece of art with no buttons, no batteries, no screens will remain valuable and in style forever.
ForeverSpin’s new release includes spinning tops made out of Magnesium and Zirconium, in addition to, a diamond-like carbon surface spinning base. Zirconium, known as a super metal, is used in the aerospace and jewellery industry. The diamond-like carbon technology used for their spinning base is also used to reduce friction in the engines of modern supersport motorcycles and Formula 1 race cars. For 2 years, ForeverSpin has been making spinning tops and has shipped to over 70 countries. With each made from solid metal, ForeverSpin offers tops in over 15 different metals and finishes which are designed to last forever. ForeverSpin’s MetalMuseum collection includes both, one of the lightest and heaviest metals known- Magnesium and Tungsten. ForeverSpin’s goal is to get the MetalMuseum in the hands of students around the globe so they can learn, play and experience the different types of metals.
As of January 4th, this project has raised around $295,000 of their $10,000 goal. This project only has 16 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $29, you will get one stainless steel top. For a pledge of $64, you will get one stainless steel top and one spinning base.
