We've hit peak fidget spinner, with some schools even banning the gizmos. Now a design team is hoping adults will want in on the fidgeting action, but instead of spinning, they'll be cubing.
The Infinity Cube is essentially another fidget toy - something to distract and occupy your restless hands and mind during calls, meetings, and presentations. But instead of a US$4 (S$5.59) toy, this design team is raising money to produce the gadgets for adults - and at adult prices.
The cube is made out of aluminium and brass pins and is apparently soothing and calming for even the most stressful office environment. It better be since it starts out at US$65 a cube on their Kickstarter page.
They've already raised nearly US$30,000, which means they'll also make a case to carry the fidget cube.
When splayed out, the cube is under 1 inch thick, so it's not a huge thing to carry around.
The cubes are supposed to arrive by August for everyone who paid for the calming toy. And crowdfunding is still open until mid-June, so you can still grab a silver or black cube.
The creators claim the cube is an office must-have, "allowing you to fidget with one hand and work with the other." Like fidget spinners, it's supposed to help with focus, anxiety, and stress.
