These Unique Spinning Tops Would be Our Inception Tokens

If I learned anything from Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s that we all need a totem, lest we might actually be stuck in a dream within a dream. If I had to choose one, I think I’d go with a top too, but something a bit cooler than the one he had in Inception. These spinning toys from Kyouei Design should work quite nicely.

What’s really cool about designer Kouichi Okamoto’s “Shape of Revolve” tops isn’t just what they look like while they’re spinning, but what they look like when they’re stopped. They’re like miniature modern art sculptures. I can’t decide which of the three designs I like best, but I’m thinking it’s the circle in the square.

Each one is made from black-plated stainless steel, and measures a little more than 3″ across. They’re sold only in a set of three, which will set you back ¥12,800 (~$115 USD), plus the cost of shipping from Japan.
