Fidgeting is considered to be a nervous habit and has developed a negative social connotation. Whether it’s because of nervousness, agitation, boredom, or a combination of these, people fidget knowingly and even subconsciously. It’s especially problematic these days as we are bombarded with stimulation. That doesn’t mean that we can fidget around like a child, especially when you’re at work or in class. The Fidget Cubeis a desk toy designed to let you fidget with your hands and help you focus.
There are numerous buttons, dials, and switches to click, flip, roll, spin, and more to keep your mind at ease and your hands busy. The reasoning behind the Fidget Cube is to put fidgeting in a less negative light through a socially acceptable outlet. It can even be used by people who are not fidgeters as a way to capture your floating attention. The concept sure seems to speak to the masses, as the Kickstarter campaign has already raised more than $1.6M at the time of writing and doesn’t show signs of slowing down with still more than a month left to go. So whether you identify yourself as a fidgeter or not, this may be exactly what you need to keep your mind focused in a world filled with distracting stimulation.
