An unusually addicting, high-quality desk toy designed to help you focus. Fidget at work, in class, and at home in style.
This current run has ended, but there are more recent runs for Fidget Cube - A Vinyl Desk Toy [2nd Run]. Click here to go to the most recent run.
Fidget Cube is a desk toy for anyone who likes to fidget
It's simple. Fidget Cube has six sides. Each side features something to fidget with:
Fidget Cube is available in 8 different color schemes:
Dice, Graphite, Midnight, Aqua, Sunset, Berry, Fresh, and Retro.
We love this question. It's not uncommon to hear fidgeting being spoken about negatively. It's often labeled as unprofessional and deemed as anti-intellectual behavior.
But in reality, the exact opposite has been suggested to be the case. Below are just some of many resources highlighting the work that's being done to learn more about this behavior:
We believe that the way we look at fidgeting needs to change.
This behavior isn't one that should continue to be stigmatized and mocked as unbecoming or inappropriate. We are passionate about the idea that fidgeting is a process that, with the right tools and outlet, can have positive and real-life applications.
It was incredibly important to us that the design of Fidget Cube was one that would look great on any desk, whether that desk belonged to a student or a CEO.
There are really no limits to when and where you can use Fidget Cube. Use it while listening to a lecture, or while studying for that upcoming test. Use it in the next meeting you have to attend (or lead). Use it at your desk while working on projects. Enduring a lengthy commute and need to relieve some stress? Fidget away. Marathoning a Netflix series? Yep, you can fidget then too.
Pens (and the wonderful clicking they do) were a huge inspiration in the design process of Fidget Cube. They are probably one of the most commonly used fidget "tools". We like to see Fidget Cube as more of a fidget "toolbox". You don't have to be constrained to simple clicking, you can pick your poison based on your mood. Yes... We are very serious about our fidgeting.
We think so! Not everyone fidgets the same amount. But spending the last few years deeply interested in the process of fidgeting, we've observed the fact that almost everyone fidgets to some extent, in a variety of ways.
Maybe you're not the type of person who uses objects like paper clips or pencils to fidget with. If that's the case, it's very likely you fidget in some other way, such as bouncing your knee up and down, tapping your foot, or picking at lint in your pocket.
We believe that Fidget Cube provides a tangible way to capture your floating attention, regardless of whether you fidget consciously or subconsciously
We're Antsy Labs, and more specifically, Matthew and Mark McLachlan - brothers that have a passion for designing solutions to problems we come across in daily life.
While we strongly believe in the many benefits of fidgeting, we aren't claiming to cure any illness or condition. Fidget Cube is a fun, unique way to customize your fidgeting. When designing Fidget Cube we were inspired by research that claims fidgeting might actually help individuals focus their attention. We have personally found that it helps us stay focused in boring meetings and while working on projects.
We so want to offer any colour at any quantity for our members; but we are bound by the parameters set by the campaign creators.
If we were given the choice, as logistics facilitators and liaison, you would be able to have anything you want; ultimately, it makes sense for us as well if you are happy. The reality is slightly different however. We have to play by the rules set by the campaign owners and this includes a limit on the colours and quantity we are permitted to select.
There are constant updates from them though on the colour choice; they have set a limit as this helps them in their production process but we believe if they can, or have already, work this out, they should be able to afford us more leeway in the colour choice. We will update accordingly :)
We are just as keen to offer this option to everyone, but the reality is with crowdfunded projects, we are unsure if the campaign owners are able to match up to their claims. So, rather than to promise you the moon, we believe it is more practical to go with what is offered at the base level and then if the opportunity does present itself, with a greater certainty of fulfillment, we will work on extending this to everyone.
Thanks for the clear explanation :) Looks like the 2nd run is done. All available colors stock taken. Will you be adding more stock to this run or do we wait for a 3rd run to start?
You're very kind :)
This fidget cube has really gotten a lot of attention! Can't wait to get them :)
Let's go for another run if the requests are there. Be sure to jump on quick to get the colour of your choice. If you've clicked on Request, your email would already have been captured and you will know as soon as the Hunt goes 'Live'!
