My recent top-building binge has taught me that low mass and simple, clean geometry can compensate for low rotational inertia when it comes to run time. This top is an excellent example of that. Three modifications =might= extend the already impressive run time for a top of this size: (i) Wagon wheel and dish both convex downward and (ii) 1x1 plate with open stud in lieu of the cone to lower the center of gravity, and (iii) round-tipped 4L antenna in lieu of the square-tipped light saber blade to reduce tip friction and favor quiet vertical sleeping over precession and walking.

Quoting Yuri Fassio Nice, but it can't beat my Minimal Top from the 2009 edition :p
Haha, yeah I saw that. But... can your top look like the ring around it is floating????
