A replica of Cobb's totem from the film "Inception". As a below review has noted, and from my own version, the top works very well, and spins upwards of 90 seconds before toppling. You just might be in a dream.

@matthiask Hey, do you mind if I put this on the gallery? Thanks for buying!

Polished Grey Steel - very nice!

Hi, this is my first experience in buying something on shapeways, so I don't know anything about the materials. When you say it's a strong and flexible plastic, it does not mean that you can 'squish' it? It would not bend, right? Thanks :)

What if "What if" was "what was"?

@Abbs From the material previews, I think polished gray steel would be the most accurate, but I don't have a sample myself to confirm.

Could some one please advice as to which material is most like the totem in the film? Thanks

I would attach a light bulb in his head, and so when you spin, depending on the intensity to ignite.

@ImpossibleNameToAlreadyHave That's one theory. I know it checks out in the movie too, but I'm just going off of common knowledge. ;-)

Cobb's totem is his wedding ring. The top was his -wife's- totem. (usable by him since no other living person has held it.) Very cool though :-)

You should make Stainless Steel the default buy option, as thats what you have shown in your pictures. I bought it in Polished Alumide before realising this. From what people have said it sounds like it will still work, but not as well. :/ Oh well fingers crossed!

Got this in Alumide to go with a Christmas gift (the movie Inception, of course!) and it's amazing! It looks good (it would be better in Stainless Steel, or Polished Alumide, I'm sure,) spins incredibly well, and is a fun little top! Would recommend to /anyone/ who likes Inception!

how does sandstone spin?

@duann That's awesome!

Congrats, your design is in the top 10 most favorited designs of 2012.

@aviatorsregret I haven't tried it in Black Detail, but the Alumide one is a little bit heavier and spins quite nicely (20-30s as opposed to the 60s available from the stainless steel one)
December 8, 2012, 3:06 pm
Is the Black Detail heavy enough to use for the material? Or does this make it too light for it to spin properly?

I know that the steel is infused with bronze, and i was wondering how often it looks discolored.Thanks.

I must be dreaming.

I had this made in Alumide, looks and feels very nice, ans spins very well too.

YAY!!! I got my stainless steel one yesterday and it is really cool. It took a while to get from the Netherlands all the way to Australia but I'm really happy. If you spin it on a really flat surface it looks so spooky like it isn't even moving!
February 24, 2011, 12:03 am
Does this thing really work?
February 6, 2011, 3:27 am
I don't see a reason why it shouldn't - that is to say, if the weight is distributed like the stainless steel model, which functions flawlessly.

Would glass work good?
January 14, 2011, 3:59 am
I brought this after seeing Inception (as I'm sure many people did) in stainless steel. Just got it today & I'm in love! It's got a good weight & will spin on almost any surface (including my sofa & palm of my hand). It also spins for a very long time, so you might just wonder if you're dreaming! Five stars
