Gorgeous colorful laser lights moving and swirling have always mesmerized me. Cosmic Top is an ever-changing kaleidoscope of color, in fact it is a 3D simulation of a real spinning top. But, it is ever so much more sleek and exciting. Some of the mesmerizing features of this 3D spinning top universal iPhone app are as follows:

- Realistic physics simulation via Euler's equations for rotating bodies
- 3D graphics and audio
- Simple and intuitive multi-touch control with up to 11 active touches on iPad*, 5 on iPhone and iPod touch
- Uses Retina display and Three-axis gyro , if available
- Optimized for high animation frame rate for each iOS device
- Unlimited shapes and sounds generated from randomized mathematical functions providing lots of replay value
- Turn off the sound to listen to your iPod music in the background
- Lock the stars to keep the top from rotating when you rotate your device
- Tap the cosmic button to randomly create a new cosmos of tops

This top is easily controlled by your touch, and using command buttons. The gestures are easy - just swipe to spin it and pinch to zoom it. One cool feature is that when rotating your device you can see and hear the humming buzzing sci-fi sounds from all sides around the top. If you love your top and want another, just tap the cosmic button so that a new series is produced.

The whirring, swirling top is a feast of color for the eyes. The tricks and sounds are just pure delight and require no more than a touch or two from you. It's a futuristic yet retro look at the simple childhood delight of a top that could keep one entertained for hours. But this is no ordinary wood top, it is your ultimate 3D fluorescent dream!
COOL CONCLUSION: Cosmic Top takes you back to innocent childhood days when the best toy of all was simply controlled by physics and gravity. This colorful new take on that spinning top toy is a beautiful transition to our modern electronic games.
