The toy top that buzzes with sci-fi sounds and glows with limitless, colorful shapes...
Best of iPhone Entertainment in the US and 8 other countries - App Store Rewind 2011
Cosmic Top is a toy, a 3D audiovisual physics simulation of a spinning, wobbling, and morphing top. The top floats among stars and takes on unlimited colorful shapes and sci-fi sounds which glow and hum in stereo from your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Swipe to spin it, pinch to zoom it, or hold to brake it. If you rotate your device, you can see and hear the top from all sides. Record your own spin and tumble sounds and then hear both tracks played back in sync with the motion of the top. Create and share video of your favorite top action. Edit echo effects, color flow, and spin inertia of each top style. Best of all, with a touch of the cosmic button, a new cosmos of sight and sound will be created for you to explore.
