Non Stop Top Never Stops Spinning – Except For When This Photo Was Taken

Non Stop Top (Image courtesy iWoot) By Andrew Liszewski

It’s hard to believe the claims that this Non Stop Top will actually spin forever when the product shot clearly shows it not spinning!

But reading further it turns out this toy doesn’t defy the laws of physics as I’d hoped, but simply features some internal battery powered mechanism that will keep it spinning until the battery dies, or until you’ve decided you’ve seen enough.

I guess I should have suspected as much when it had a price tag of about $16 and is available from I Want One Of Those instead of DARPA or the Rand Corporation.
