I have a lot of old cds burned with useless files or obsolets OS. The first I though is to throw them to the trash. But they are so brilliant, so colorful and circular; they have pi number in all their diameter!(Did I say I love pi?). And, at the end of the day I don´t know what to do with them. And that's why I have tons(not really) of cds in my bedroom.

But this situation must end right now. May I can make a cd curtain (wait for it) or this project. Actually, I think I should start with something simple but funny. That's how I though in this: a spinning top.

Have a good time with your colleagues playing spinning top battles or have fun lonely when you are full of work and that's the last you want to do.

Keep reading to have your full recycled CD spinning top.

Pi is great but I love Pie even better
Jajaja thats a good answer, but you must know that Pie has Pi on it!
