I agree with SpinQueen.  That is a very sharp looking top and video.

Hey Miss SQ........just wanted to let you know we were talking about you at the Miamisburg Top Fest.  You are often listed as the number two female spinner in the world.  Possibly the number three female in the world was with us on Saturday with her son, Sam.

I'm wondering if that is only an animation or is it really a physical top?
The pattern is exquisite!

Agreed, very nice video and a very cool design on the top.  Is it an explantion of a physics property?  I can read something about a gyroscopic effect and vectors in the paragraph before it falls apart, which is also a very neat effect.
