Kevin Nam inami toyland’s “Robo Tops” are back in time for the holidays with the Cloudfall edition. Inspired by winter weather and glimmering snow, these new colorways feature marbled white with either blue or purple. As an added effect they are coated with a hint of pearlescent blue glitter. Robo Tops combine the timeless game of Rock-Paper-Scissors with the spin mechanic of a top.
How it works is you spin the top and once it stops, whichever hand is raised is its move. You can play against it or if you have two of them you can play with a friend!
“Robo Top is the second rock-paper-scissors top that I have made. After creating Big Top, I realized that there were a lot of problems I could fix. I learned a lot about the mechanics behind spinning tops and decided that in order to fully realize my idea, I had to take it one step further.
This new top is smaller so it’s much lighter and easier to spin. I’ve streamlined the design to remove as many variables from the kinetics behind it.”
We think this is a pretty cool idea and the design is awesome and at that price it’s a no brainer, even if you use it for its purpose or not. Mixing usefulness with an awesome design. Previous releases have sold out and this Cloudfall should too, I wouldn’t sleep if I was you. Check out the video below to see the Robo Tops in action!
