About this project
Check out the new, high intensity, fidgeting video...
hmm...ok, admittedly, watching isn't all that exciting so it's pretty much impossible to express the entertainment value through words or visually...you just have to grab one to get it.
In a world inundated with hand spinners, why choose ours? I'll keep this simple...
Clean, pocket sized design
Our simple design is intentional. Fidgeting is the point, not impressing your friends with wacky design that is too bulky for your pocket.
We've had many successful campaigns with extremely satisfied customers as well as a trusted brand name for six years now. You know that you can trust our quality and customer service.
Precision machined in California
All of our products are made in the U.S.A with the highest quality machining and we guarantee everything that goes out the door.
U.S.A. made bearing!
This is rare among spinners and part of the reason ours is a bit more pricey then some others. The cost of our bearing is 5-6 times (standard retail value is $22) that of the imported but we believe it's worth it! 'Merica!
I'm a little obsessed with the current fidget obsession. Why, when, how? The only conclusion that I've come to is that we've become more and more fidgety over the years with the rise of technology and didn't realize we needed a solution until it was in our hands. That whole "necessity is the mother of invention" idea. I don't know if I buy into the idea that these fidget devices will actually reduce anxiety but I do see them as fun little toys to add to your collection.
Although I admire the machining of quite a few spinners out there, the main thing that bothered me was the size and the thing I care less about is spin time. I don't get four minute spin times. The longest I ever let this thing spin before stopping it is 27 seconds. It's a fidget device, not a spinning top so I have no use for extra long spin times. Mine will spin for two minutes but I sacrificed time for the small size. It would spin longer with more weight and a larger bearing but that was least important to me. I wanted it to sit comfortably in my pocket and not stick out like a sore thumb when I'm fidgeting with it. Less button, more body was another must have. Just more aesthetically pleasing to me and I found that you don't need thumb sized buttons to have a nice spinning experience.
2's and 7's - As with many of my pieces there is a hidden 27. The outside perimeter of the piece has 7 grooves that are .02" apart from each other. So what's the point? If you follow the brand and have our Decision Maker coin, you may have noticed the 27. The Decision Maker coin is the first time I blatantly included it in the design but 2's and 7's are hidden in quite a few of my pieces.
I'm not into numerology and I don't believe in luck but, for personal reasons, the number 27 has always created good energy for me (there's a reason for it but prefer to keep that on the down low). When I find room for the number(s) or see it in my environment, I believe that I'm on the right path. I'm well aware that this is likely in my head and that I see the number and create the number because I'm obsessed with it but that doesn't matter to me. What matters is that I'm able to create something positive from it and share it with others.
So what does it mean to you? Frankly, maybe nothing, but it's my attempt to put a piece of positive energy in your hands with the hope that it inspires you on any level.
Risks and challenges
As with any project, it's difficult to anticipate manufacturing challenges but we are fairly confident that this project has little risks involved and challenges will be few. We've already run 30 prototype to work out the bugs and are ready to produce. The biggest issue may be the bearings but that's the main reason we are sticking with a U.S.A. made bearing.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
