Modular Product: Beetletop
Pratt Institute / Fall 2010
A spinning top for ages four and up. The surface is made of modular pieces in various colors, that the user could assemble into different color combinations. This would not only allow the user to experience different visual effects when spinning the top, but also the opportunity to learn about segmented shapes and the concept of gestalt, and of course, to have fun!
Named after the golden tortoise beetle, a creature capable of dramatically changing its own color, Beetletop offers a delightful and colorful array of swirls; an activity that will “spin creativity!”
