WE GOT A REVIEW BY EPIC SNUGGLE BUNNY! CHECK IT OUT!!

The Helix

The Helix was created out of necessity. Did you know that average HIGH END ( all metal ) fidget spinner is only 3 pieces and can cost upwards of 200USD? I know crazy right...So The Helix was born.

  • 12 pieces of full CNC machined metal art
  • modular ( meaning any helix can break down and fit with another )
  • Wholesale price point ONLY available to kickstarter backer

So why do CNC machined spinners cost so much? Well the machinery you need can cost anywhere between $100-500,000 dollars in order to create them. As well as the time and knowledge you need to be able to run them successfully, But does this mean you should be overcharged for 3 Pieces of metal?

So why is the Helix 1/2 the price and 4x the parts of most current high end models on the market?

Well its simple i made this for the people, I wanted to create something that anyone could afford and still be complex enough that you were getting the biggest bang for your buck. Let's be honest most of us will never own a Ferrari and 99.99% of the population will never go to the Moon, but that doesn't mean we cant have a piece of functional metal art that can be constantly updated to fit your lifestyle and daily fidget needs.

Remember this is modular and if you buy more then 1 you can combine them in numerous ways so that you have a new spinner every time you leave the house. If you buy 3 different combinations you have THOUSANDS of combinations, spin times and feels to play with and change at your own pace.

The helix is 60mm in diameter ( 2 3/8 inches ) and with a button to button width of 16mm ( 5/8 of an inch ) it is a nice size for all hands. It also has a spin feel that is out of this world and will make you not want to put it down.

Risks and challenges

At this point of the projects I have reviewed every possible risk and complication I could have.

Shipping,
I have reviewed every possible method of shipping that is available to me. I have set up multiple accounts and have negotiated the best rates possible for you the consumer.

Packaging:
I started looking at all kinds of fancy packaging and after much deliberation I have decided to go absolute minimal. Personally i would rather put my money into the product and not the box that it comes in, that is most likely going to end up in the trash. I just want to make sure the product gets to you safely and in perfect working order, that is all.

Manufacturing:
This one was a doozey, creating a spinner with this level of complexity in volume was much more difficult than first expected. I have however discovered a manufacture to create a product to my specifications using high grade materials and delivering a consistent product that I am happy to hand finish and sell to you the consumer.

All in all The Helix was alot of fun to build and create and i wait to mass produce so that you can enjoy it as much as i do.
