A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

What Is A Spinner Cube?
The Spinner Cube is a stress relief and focus tool for ages young and old that will satisfy all your fidgeting habits. The ultimate all-in-one fidget toy with the ability to spin indefinitely is here.
We Want It All. Spinning, Clicking, Rolling, Gaming...
The Spinner Cube comes equipped with a high quality clickable joystick, a classic gamer trigger, five clickable buttons (four make noise, one is silent), three rolling metal balls and two precision bearings with spiral grooved caps.
With the flick of a finger the Spinner Cube spins up to 60 seconds* but when shaken softly, it can spin indefinitely and provide an arm strengthening workout. *Spin time will vary depending on spin force.
Both bearing sides of the cube include a spiral grooved bearing cap to increase grip strength and tactile comfort. Rub the spiral grooves for a satisfying texture or rotate each cap for a volume dial sensation.
Three rolling metal balls with a clickable feature form a trifecta of fidgeting entertainment. Roll and click them separately or together and massage your fingers.
Five soft rubber buttons in a target formation will satisfy all pen-clickers. Four outer arrow buttons make different audible tones and the center circle button is silent for quiet environments. Take that, quiet waiting rooms.
A high quality joystick with precision control and a clickable top feature will satisfy your inner gamer when you need to unplug from the daily routine.
Spring back from anxiety with a spring loaded clicky trigger. Use the Trigger in conjunction with the Joystick for the ultimate gaming sensation.
But It Needs To Spin FOREVER
When we set out to revolutionize fidgeting, we wanted to make a fidget spinner that had the longest spin time ever. We came up with the idea to make the Spinner Cube slightly off balance allowing it to spin for as long as a user can shake it. After countless test and prototypes, we finally perfected the Spinner Cube's precise balance, making it the first fidget toy with the ability to spin indefinitely.
Beat Our 18 Minute Record
Softly shake the Spinner Cube while in motion and catch the flow of the rotation to accomplish a controlled indefinite spin. To spinfinity and beyond. Check out the video below of our record 18 minute spin!! How long do you think you can spin for?!
You don't have to just spin alone. Make it a challenge and compete with your friends to see who can spin the longest! The power of the spin is in your hands. See if you can beat our 18 minute record!
Like The Baby Boomers, We Desire Quality
We're not baby boomers, but we do know quality. We designed the Spinner Cube to be extremely durable with just the right weight. Not too small but not too big, you can easily slip the Spinner Cube into your pocket for on-the-go fidgeting, without worrying about losing your grip on it. The Spinner Cube weighs 2.1 ounces and has a dimension of 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.5 inches.

Don’t Understand Fidgeting?
“You do not like them. So you say. Try them! Try them! And you may. Try them and you may, I say.” ~ Dr. Seuss
Dr. Seuss was right. Studies have now shown that fidgeting has the ability to improve memory, creativity and focus. In an age of abundant technology, distractions are everywhere and focus is limited. Disconnect from your phones and "tap" into the present moment with the Spinner Cube. Are you ready to overcome your fears and stay focused in stressful or distracting environments?
INCREASE COGNITIVE PERFORMANCE: Fidgeting with small objects while under pressure during a school examination has shown to assist with mental focus while also increasing the ability to perform cognitive tasks, resulting in higher test scores. Better grades? Sign us up.
RELIEVE STRESS AND ANXIETY: When you keep your body busy with a physical object you allow your mind to rest. Fidget toys that keep your hands busy have been shown to calm the mind and reduce stress and anxiety. Fidget toys have also had recent success helping ADHD, ADD and Autistic individuals.
The Spinner Cube can be used in all situations whether you’re at home, on the job, commuting, in the classroom, or on an adventure.

The Idiot Genius Inventors
Hi, Mitchell Sorkin and Will Gasner here, inventors of the Spinner Cube. We’re serial entrepreneurs in our 20's with a mission to produce high-quality simple products that make difficult problems easier for people around the world.
After graduating from college we pursued various business ventures ranging from mobile apps and web development to jewelry and cutting boards. After moving from little Rhode Island to California in October 2016, we came up with the idea to develop the Spinner Cube.
We set out with a goal to combine the best features that would satisfy the most popular fidgeting habits, and actually help people cope with anxiety in stressful and distracting situations. We also wanted to make a fidget spinner with the longest spin time to create the ultimate fidgeting device.
Our final creation, the Spinner Cube, will feed your need to fidget, let you spin indefinitely and help you deal with everyday stress so you can stay focused on what’s important in life.
What We Did & Where We Are
We came up with the idea to create a new "revolutionary" fidget toy about one year ago in October of 2016. After months of research, hundreds of sketches, dozens of prototypes, and countless hours of engineering and tests, the final design of the Spinner Cube was finished in February of 2017.
We worked with local engineers and designers throughout February to get our final product ready for manufacturing. Then we went through the tedious process of finding the perfect manufacturer who could spearhead our production, stay within our manufacturing budget, and had ethical conditions for their workers.
After a series of Skype calls we found some trustworthy companies that would fit our needs. We decided we would spend the last of our savings and fly to China to work directly with the manufacturers to ensure that our product came out as we had imagined and nothing slipped through the cracks.
We flew to China for three weeks during March 2017. After dozens of factory tours we locked down an amazing manufacturing facility to work with and started production of our molds. After returning from China financially depleted we decided to turn to Kickstarter to help us with the last steps of production.
We need your help to place a minimum order of Spinner Cubes! If our campaign is a success, we will send over the final payment to our manufacturers the day our campaign ends and start the first round of Spinner Cube production.
All our molds are finally finished so we will be able to start shipping out rewards within two weeks of our campaign ending. Take a look at our production timeline graph and images from our journey below.
We Prototyped More
We Flew To China
We Manufactured Molds
We Ran Out Of Money But We Did It.

We will promptly ship out orders as soon as our campaign ends! We just need your help to place a minimum purchase order to bring the Spinner Cube to the world!
We’ve done our due diligence to make sure there are no delays in shipment if our campaign is successful! It's no fun to have to wait months after a Kickstarter project ends to get your reward, so we have made sure we’re not going to be one of those companies! If you’re ordering for the holidays, you don't have to worry, your orders will be shipped on schedule!

Even though studies have shown various benefits to fidgeting, we can’t claim that the Spinner Cube has any medical benefits or that it can cure, treat, or prevent an illness or condition. We incorporated features that satisfy common fidgeting habits and designed them to be discrete and usable in all environments. We look forward to taking the next step with the Kickstarter community. We hope you enjoy the Spinner Cube as much as we do!
Risks and challenges
This is a low risk project. This is our first Kickstarter campaign but not our first startup venture. We’ve been dreaming and creating for the last 12 years on businesses varying from jewelry to mobile apps.
We’ve already done all the hard lifting for the Spinner Cube and we just need your help to place our first order. If we get flooded with more orders than expected, we have prepared for increased production capabilities and we should be able to send backer rewards promptly without delays. We will constantly keep the community informed about our final steps and notify everyone if our plans in anyway get hindered.
We will collect your Spinner Cube color style choice (Ether, Spark, Flow, or Bloom) after our campaign is over. If you fail to respond to our Spinner Cube color style request in time, we will pick a color combination for you at random.
We will keep the community updated on our manufacturing process at the end of the campaign to make sure no backer is left in the dark about their rewards! We want to make sure everyone gets their holiday gifts on time this year!
