Chances are, whenever you were younger, you tried your hand at spinning a top. This is one of the more frustrating toys in existence, because no matter how hard you try, you can only to get the top to keep going for a few seconds. If you managed to get more than ten seconds out of it, the only explanation would have to be sorcery and witchcraft.
Nowadays, you can find things like the Precision Gyroscope. If you thought playing with a top was fun, then this thing is going to blow your mind, with science!

If this sounds like something that would interest you, you’ll be happy to know that it’s not going to break the bank at only $11.99.
