About

What is the Fidgetizer?

The problem: We love to fidget -- at work, in the car, on-the-go. Everywhere. But, we feel silly carrying around toys to scratch that itch.

Our solution: We built the first versions of the Fidgetizer for ourselves to help fidget discreetly and whenever with nothing more than our phones. 

We quickly began using them non-stop, and our friends took interest. They were asking to buy them, and we realized there's a number of people out there who would love these just as much as we do. 

We started producing higher quality prototypes and iterating on new designs and materials; the Fidgetizer was born.

We're now incredibly pleased with the product and excited to bring it to market. But that's where we need you. With your help, we can bring the Fidgetizer to life in an affordable, scalable way.


So, how do you use it?

Well, the Fidgetizer is quite versatile. We've highlighted some of our favorite techniques, but once you get your mitts on one (or seven), the possibilities are endless.

Worry-stone: Soothing and good for the soul. Disclaimer: you'll find yourself doing this all the time. Great for finding low-key zen in the work place or class.

 

Disk Jockey: Great for seated fidgeting at a desk or in a meeting. It's our personal favorite. Goes well with Airpods ;)

 

Two-handed wield: We're not gonna lie -- this one will turn some heads, but it feels sooo right. Great for fidgeting on-the-go. 

 

Face-melter: Put on your favorite Youtube visualizer and let it rip. You may find yourself doing this home alone in the dark on a Saturday night...or maybe that's just us.

 

Nirvana: You've attained fidget enlightenment. Go forth and spread the gospel. This party favorite is not for the faint of heart.

 

Product Details

Fidgetizers are precision made using state of the art 3D printing and high-quality ball bearings for incredible performance. Our extra strength adhesive ensures the Fidgetizer securely attaches to your phone for all types of extreme fidgeting without leaving any trace on your phone when you remove it.

The Fidgetizer is available in two models: the Puck and the Quad. Both the Puck and Quad are available in either white or black.

Risks and challenges

We're perfectionists, but perfect don't come easy.

Variability in total funding could require tweaks to manufacturing process. We expect to be able to ship in time regardless of manufacturing scale; however, it is a genuine source of variability.

As perfectionists, if we find ways to improve the pre-production prototypes before final production we will make minor design tweaks to improve the final product.

Let's be real, the risk here is is post-production: you can't stop fidgeting because you love your Fidgetizer so much!

Whatever the case, we'll be fully transparent with our backers throughout the process and are confident we'll be shipping on time (or earlier)!
