About

Fidget Technology (James Martin & William C. Neger III) has taken the classic fidget spinner to an entirely new level. The Smart Spinner has been in development for the last 6 months and we feel it is ready for the public to see. 

The Smart Spinner is equipped with numerous different modes, which can be toggled through our color coded system. We have many different modes to ensure that there will always be a pleasant spinning experience.  

 

 Every Super Early backer will be able to customize their spinner by choosing 2 different colors (GO Bulldogs !). We strongly encourage college students to represent their school by picking their team colors! There will also be a color mode that correlates with the color of your spinner. Limited Body colors for other tiers can be chosen in our order form once this project is successfully funded.

 The Smart Spinner is equipped with 3 bright LED's that sustain a pleasant level of brightness.

The following is a current list of all the Smart Spinner features that will be in each model.

  • Basic colors and pattern
  • Flashlight
  • Self programming colors/patterns
  • Yes/No decision making
  • Retro Simon-Says game
  • Go Team Colors for game day

The Smart Spinner is NOT limited to these features. We are still in the prototype stage of the project and we will continue to add more fun modes to the spinner. If you have ideas of a feature you would like to see in the spinner, please share with us and leave a comment. The imagination is the only limit with the Smart Spinner.

We are using a color coded system for our different modes. When the Smart spinner is turned on you will be presented with a variety of different colors, each color will be correspondent with a different feature. To active the desired feature all your have to do is point the spinner downward on that corresponding color. Every order will be provided with a color coded chart to show the color that will activate that feature. See video below for more details.

 This mode is exactly how it sounds. If you are looking for that relaxing light up spin without all the bells and whistles, then this is the mode for you. The Smart Spinner is pre-programmed with basic colors and patterns, so you can have a pleasurable light up spin experience.

 

 Everyone seems to have their fidget spinner on hand, so we added the extra bright mode to ensure that the spinner is not only fun, but an everyday convenience.

 Our Self programming mode is one of a kind, you will be presented with all colors of the rainbow (ROY G BIV) and will be able to choose any color you want to display in your pattern. 

For example, you can choose the colors red, green, blue, orange and then violet. After selecting you colors all you have to do is activate the pattern to see your programmed pattern be displayed. See video below for exact instructions.

Have a tough question that requires a Yes/no answer? Then simply activate the decision mode and and let the Smart Spinner decide for you!

 When the smart spinner has stopped spinning, it will randomly give you a Yes, No, or Maybe answer to the question you asked it!  

 The Smart Spinner is the first spinner to have games programmed into it. This Retro Simon-Says game mode will provide you with and endless amount of enjoyment because it is unbeatable

The game starts out simple and progressively gets harder with each attempt. We are going to ensure that that there is no limit to the difficulty and will adapt to the skill level of all users.

 The potential of the Smart Spinner is only limited by the imagination, and because of that we want to strongly urge all of our backers to share with us ideas of features they would like to see implemented in the Smart Spinner.

 Each Smart Spinner will be equipped with a micro speaker that will provide beeps and tones that will be interactive with the spinner. Of course there will be the capability to mute the speaker when it needs to be used in more subtle environments.

The Smart Spinner will have an on/ off switch located on one of its sides. Located near the switch will be the charging port. Every backer will be supplied with a standard USB charging cable t o recharge their spinner. Recharging will not have to occur often, the average Smart Spinners battery life is 10 hours.

Our designs are not yet finalized. So the Spinners you see above are all prototypes. So do not be discouraged by the quality of the Smart Spinner because they are all 3D printed. Our final product will be smooth ABS injection molded to ensure quality satisfaction and durability.

We currently plan to use a 608RS High-Quality bearing with ceramic balls for the Smart Spinners. This is not a set feature, if we can reach our stretch goals we will be able to upgrade to full ceramic bearings.

**Caution: The Smart Spinners are fabricated from small components which could potentially be a choking hazard, do not leave young children unattended with the Smart Spinner.

 

Risks and challenges

Fidget Technology has a well built team of engineers who have significant experience in designing of integrated circuit boards and 3D designing. This product will be ensured as a top shelf premium spinner.
However to make this Smart Spinner with affordable prices, we absolutely MUST hit our goal.

We do not see any foreseeable problems that may occur. In the unlikely event that one does occur we will communicate immediately with you and work diligently to fix it.
