After the fidget spinner craze of 2017, it's clear that rotating toys have a lot of potential to catch on, and the record-breaking LIMBO top is banking on that supposition. The sleek top has an embedded mechanical gyro that allows it to spin for as long as there's charge in the battery -- which can be four hours or more.
Though the LIMBO top doesn't directly reference the popular 2014 film 'Inception', it has more than a passing similarity to the top used by the movie's main character as a point of somnolent reference. In the film, the top's unending spin signified that the character was in a dream, so the LIMBO top, which recently set the Guinness World Record for the longest spinning mechanical top, owes its inspiration to the film.
