Fidgeting has been scientifically proven to help people think, clear their minds and improve their problem solving skills. But up until recently fidgeters have used items for fidgeting such as clicking pen tops or pencils tapping on a desk. Now you can get specific fidgets such as spinners and switches that look like either toys or gadgets.
Introducing FIDGET CLIX, not only are they beautiful and look good anywhere, but they allow a true fidget action to help focus the mind.
FIDGET CLIX are designed specifically to allow you to get the most out of fidgeting AND are aesthetically pleasing as well.
Ever reinventing the way things are done, Daniel and Zachary have worked together on projects from the world of construction, to graphic design and art.
Zac is what one might call a professional fidgeter, if there is such a thing. Daniel, while working with metals, plastics and magnets, designed a cube with magnets on each face and the complementary cube with the opposite polarity. Every combination of two faces between the pair is attracted to the other and in so doing, make a nice “click” sound as they come together. They feel good in your hands and they look good too. As you separate the pair and roll them around in your hand, they soon find each other and connect again with the satisfying “click”.
It seemed a fidget was born; FIDGET CLIX to be exact. Daniel handed the pair, unavoidably attracted to each other, to the professional fidgeter, Zac who in short order refused to give them back. "Kickstarter?" Daniel said? With a smile, Zac said “no doubt”.
With a great amount of research into the world of fidgets, from ancient times to the present, the opinions of psychologists and psychiatrists, family and friends, combined with both Daniel and Zac’s inherent knowledge and experience of how things work, the campaign was created.
We Need Your Help:
While we have worked long and hard figuring out how to make the perfect fidget, FIDGET CLIX are far from ready for anything but small run production. We need your help to purchase machinery, develop jigs, hire and train staff, and place orders for outsourced components such as marked product bags and boxes. And if this campaign goes crazy we will need to outsource for help with logistics and fulfillment.
It is with your help that we can make FIDGET CLIX available at a reasonable price to anyone who wants them. This project is also just the beginning, with long term plans for even greater ideas. So please help us make FIDGET CLIX a reality.
FIDGET CLIX - Original
FIDGET CLIX - Original are 3/4" comforting polished resin cubes, similar to game dice, with a single rare earth neodymium magnet embedded into each face. The magnets attract the cubes to each other creating a very satisfying click, but because these cubes have rounded edges and smoothed corners the action is smooth. FIDGET CLIX - Original feel so natural in your hand that you never want to put them down. FIDGET CLIX - Original are available in either BLACK or WHITE. A survey will be sent out prior to shipping to let us know your color choice. You may also select one of each if you get more than one pair.
FIDGET CLIX - Casino
FIDGET CLIX - Casino are made from pre-polished translucent red official casino dice blanks with a single strong rare earth neodymium magnet embedded into each face. The magnets, combined with the perfectly flat surfaces, attract the cubes to each other creating a strong positive click. These dice have squared off edges and corners which enhance the play and give them a very distinct snap action when they find each other. The action of FIDGET CLIX - Casino is more definitive, you definitely know you have them in your hand. They give a more tactile feedback than any of the other FIDGET CLIX models.
FIDGET CLIX - Carbon
FIDGET CLIX - Carbon are cut from solid 20mm (just over 3/4") carbon fiber plates with a single strong rare earth neodymium magnet embedded into each face. The magnets attract the cubes to each other creating a strong positive click. FIDGET CLIX - Carbon are not as rounded as the Original nor as sharp as the Casino and have their own feel and action in your hand. They have a distinct sharp snap when they find each other, yet they are smooth and comfortable in your hand. FIDGET CLIX - Carbon have a unique feel. To hold a 3/4" cube of solid carbon fiber is unlike anything else.

Risks and challenges
Risks are certainly a large part of life and with measured calculation, there are good ones to take. We are taking every consideration to ensure that FIDGET CLIX are designed and manufactured in such a way as to maximize your investment in the product.
If we were not to meet our goal, we would have done our very best to try to bring to market a great product where the project just did not fly. We would have had a great time in the R&D stage, communicating with friends and family and wondering what would happen with a successful campaign. We would obviously be spending time and money from our own pockets with the hope of a return but ultimately, a risk more than worth taking as the journey, itself, is such a fulfilling component of the campaign.
If the campaign does get funded, there is very little risk to you. We have the vendors to source all our material lined up and ready to go and we are ready to put all the pieces together. The only real risk is if this campaign is wildly successful, then we will need to ramp up our production capabilities and put into place logistics for customer tracking, packaging and distribution, but at that point we will be well funded and have the means, already having relationships to help out in place.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
