Lumino Disc is a new type of spinning top that counts the number of rotations it performs in real time. Once spun, it generates a magnetic field that enables it to orient itself with that of the earth, allowing it to determine the moment it passes a particular direction; this count is displayed on the disc in real time by means of LED lights.
