Designer and engineer Hugo of Ghost Design is back on Kickstarter to launch his second creation in the form of the Gyro Spin, a gyro spinning top that can spin for over 12 minutes. The perfectly balanced gyro spinning top features a selfbalancing gyroscope design and is constructed from aerospace steel in three finishes. For a unique project, early bids are now available at a special price of approximately £34 to £28 (depending on current exchange rates).
“Hi! I’m Hugo from Ghost Design. After our first launch last year with Ghost Yo Yo, we’re excited to introduce the Gyro Spin. A highprecision gyro spinner with ultralong spin times… The continuous spin gyroscope design allows you to explore physical effects. Spin the disc regardless of axis , creating a unique gyroscopic inertia that can be felt with your hands and also increases the spin time.”

Assuming that the Gyro Spin funding campaign successfully achieves the required goal and the completion of the project proceeds smoothly, worldwide delivery is expected to take place around October 2022. To learn more about the Gyro Spin project, watch the promotional video below.
“We take user experience seriously… You will find a unique tactile experience with a perfect surface finish. You can lift it, move it, or even do tricks and it will stay perfectly balanced. The modular design allows for many tricks and experiments…. Spin upside down or on your finger as a mysterious force seems to defy gravity. With two or more Gyro Spins, you can play games with your friends or compete to see who can hold their Gyro Spin the longest. “
“At the moment, the longest spin time we’ve had is just over 12 minutes! Such long rotation times can be easily achieved with the right technique. This is possible thanks to ultrafast ceramic bearings…”
