Mesh-It: the silent fidget pen.

$11,731

Mesh-It pen has a squeezable pouch that makes no sound and will not draw unwanted attention to the user. Using one or both hands, the user can slide, roll, or squish the marble back and forth in tight tube of mesh to soothe anxiety and stress. 

I created Mesh-It, the world's first silent fidget pen as a discreet solution for fidgeters in an office or classroom setting.

Currently, I'm a secondary teacher in Texas. After 16 years of teaching, I identified a desperate need to find a resource for my students and colleagues that would keep their hands occupied with minimal distractions.

I suffered from ADHD as a child and struggled to focus in the classroom. As a fidgeter myself, I discovered that a tangible object helped me focus. I created the Mesh-It pen (patent pending) to help quietly relieve nervous energy in both schools and offices alike.

The Mesh-It pen is an alternative to popular gadgets like the Fidget Spinner. Most of these sensory gadgets are highly visual and make noise becoming more of an interruption than a fix.

I have more than students in mind for the Mesh-It pen. My friends often vent to me about antsy co-workers who disrupt meetings with retractable pens or loud child-like widgets. The Mesh-It pen was truly created for all the nervous pen clickers of the world. 

 The number of children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder has reached more than 10 percent, a significant increase over the past 20 years. Our hope is to help both children and adults who struggle with ADHD or fidgeting so they can live and work to their fullest potential.

In order to accomplish this, we need your help to Kickstart our inventory, allowing us to keep our pricing low by ordering in bulk and get our product quickly to market.

Risks and challenges

There are risks involved in designing something from scratch and bringing it into the world.

We have been working on this pen for over a year and the design has been refined and the manufacturer is lined up to commence production. We tested several prototypes and are extremely happy with the end results. The cost of the moulds has been paid to our manufacturer. The moulds were made and tested for the first manufacturing run. The images reflect the production quality samples from these moulds.

We're very comfortable adapting to unforeseen circumstances. We value customer service and if things go wrong, we will do everything in our power to make it right.
