Pretty neat, but it won't get you laid like tapping your pencil inssently does.

Now picture a subway car full of self-diagnosed internet wizards all clicking these. Neat idea in principle though, stim toys.

Some people need motion to concentrate, that's good science. I'd rather grab a grip strength enhancer though as it also helps channel excess rage. Also after a few months of squeezing those things, you'll be able to rip a Nazi's throat out with your bare hands.

This is the height of crowdfunding bullshittery imo.
So, maybe I'm totally wrong (I'd like to hear from anyone with experience on that) but these points occur to me.
If you have a condition that gives you a tendency to fidget overly, surely completely giving in to the tendency, to the extent that you get a device specifically to indulge it, will train yourself to do it *more* rather than the opposite?
Either way, surely a plethora of common objects (pens, paper clips, cables ,blu-tack etc) can fufill this role?
Now if you use this device and become dependant on it, when you lose/misplace it you'll be freaking out and commonly available objects wont be able to fufil your need anymore.

Why waste good money on a knife when you can just sharpen up a piece of flint?

You're supposed to beat this sort of problem out of people while they're still young, and you'll never be able to throw this little thing hard enough to accomplish that.

My father has advanced dementia and I'm kind of thinking something like this might be useful for him. He can't solve any puzzles, he doesn't really understand what's going on. Something like this that doesn't really have a purpose, or require "solving" might be something that he could fidget with to pass the time while he's waiting to die.
But I guess he would just throw it in the toilet or something. What they should do is add a loop that you could connect a string or something to it so it doesn't get lost.

Someone with ADHD now translates: We have designed the finest engineer stimulation toy that you as an ADHDer will spend money on without thinking to play with for a week and then either lose or forget.
A downside of US sentiment is that I can no longer fidget with my Egyptian prayer beads because MOOSLUM.

Try a Tibetan worry stone.
Oh, wait. The Fidget Cube has one built in.

Single-function fidget toys have been around for years and are recognized by experts as a great way to help children and adults suffering ADD and ADHD focus.
This thing is nifty because it's small, multi-function and has options to be operated silently.
Of course, there are lots of assholes who don't have or know anyone who has ADD or ADHD who don't realize this and think this is some sort of cheap novelty.

I can't wait for these smug startup styled adverts go out of vogue.
Really? You thought about your stupid product? Wow, that must have been really hard.

I might buy one, I used to keep a staple remover around for just this purpose.
