Are "Fidget Spinners" Going To Be Your New Finger Addiction?
January 26, 2017
Across the Internet, people are discovering a new and deviously simple device that helps those with attention disorders (or really anybody that likes to keep their hands busy when doing work or trying to focus).
Known as "Hand Spinners" or "Fidget Spinners", they're becoming incredibly popular and even have their own
dedicated to them.
They're available in a stunning array of designs, colors, and materials but their core principle is all the same
A balanced weighted mass rotates around a low friction ball bearing, sustaining the spinning motion after a good sturdy flick of the finger
They come at time when more old school adult fidgeting classics like zippo lighters and pocket knives are a little too dangerous for casual public use
In a world of flimsy plastic and disposable cardboard it's gotta feel nice to play with a chunk of precision-machined metal
Though it doesn't have to be too fancy, many people are making their own using available skills and resources
Some creations are more... improvised than others
The one thing we know for sure is I've never gone from "didn't know that was a thing" to "holy crap I WANT ONE" so quickly in my entire life
