About

Why SPECTA?

It’s no joke. When we get frustrated, stuck on problems, or pondering on ideas, we mindlessly fidget. Why? Because fidgeting relieves stress from work, school and everyday life, and it’s fun! But while many fidget devices offer great features for releasing energy, most of them are made of plastic, which is flimsy and relegates them to being perceived as a toy.

SPECTA seeks to change that, by creating a high-quality, serious tool for both fidgeting and work.

SPECTA Pen

The SPECTA Pen is a premium EDC pen, sleekly machined of aluminum alloy that reimagines fidgeting with a pen altogether. Its nearly silent operation is discreet, letting you fidget without distracting those around you, and the hefty aluminum build feels rewarding and reassuring in your hand. We love it so much that we've patented it!

The included ballpoint cartridge allows for silky smooth writing as well as for sketching. 

A perfectly concealed stylus integrated seamlessly into the pen cap is ready to provide a smudge free experience.

A gorgeously machined stainless-steel clip secures the pen inside the pocket and prevents it from rolling off the table!

There is also zero visible screws! It keeps the design clean and sleek.

A great selection of colors and materials to choose from. There is no other pen that look as good and as unique like the SPECTA in its two-tone glory. Scroll down to see all the available selections! 

Brass and Copper develops a nice patina over time. 

Intricate details accomplished through high precision machining.

SPECTA Ball

The SPECTA Ball is a hybrid pen stand and fidget device with 9 unique functions. Like the SPECTA Pen, its durable, spherical unibody is milled from a single block of aluminum, and every inch serves a function. It comes with 9 amazing features. Six for fidgeters! 

A turning top-ring bezel. Makes a clicking sound when turned, just like turning the ring bezel on a watch. 

A retractable bottle opener that lets you fidget with by flicking it open like a knife. How cool is that!

An integrated spring-loaded silent button.

Two integrated spinners that can spin together, or independently for a short spin. Installed with two premium steel ball-bearings.

Spin it with your thumb!

A soft touch silicone knob to rub against.

Inserting a ¼” hex bit into the ball transforms it into a screw driver for everyday tasks.

A stand that proudly displays your pen.

Funds & Manufacturing

With your support, all the funds will go into producing the production runs of the pen and ball. This will include tooling(molding) cost, setup fee, labor cost and all other manufacturing cost. The goal will also help us meet the minimum order quantity(MOQ) needed in order for us to offer the lowest discounted price possible. Because the design is more complex and require a lot of parts, manufacturing is very labor intensive and time consuming. We are working with more than ten suppliers to make each SPECTA Pen and Ball. We also carefully choose our suppliers, only those with a solid track record of delivering quality products will pass our screening.

Shipping   

We did our best to provide the most reasonable shipping cost for you. Please note that some countries may charge custom tax, but it all depends. Unfortunately we don't cover that and it will be backer's responsibility.

Our Story  

We started on the idea of SPECTA back in early 2016. We want to create a solution can improve productivity and reduce anxiety through fidgeting. The product we envisioned has to be unique, high quality and beautifully designed.

Funmodity is founded in Los Angeles, CA by Shin Feng, an industrial designer and inventor. His mission is to design and make small products that touches our daily lives with a hint of fun and uniqueness. 

Risks and challenges

We are very aware of the challenges ahead. But we’ll get through it with your support. We have extensive knowledge and experience in product manufacturing and knows how to properly execute. In the end we want to make sure you are happy with our product. We want to exceed your expectations.

Disclaimer: Please note that we might make some minor tweaks and design changes to the production units for improvement. This may have a slight effect on the weight and dimension, although it will be very small.
