    Fidget ring and cube

    Was anyone ever told: "Don't fidget!"

    Click a pen repeatedly? Spin your wedding band on your finger? Perform a basic repetitive physical activity to reduce stress or enhance concentration?

    There's actually some data suggesting that fidgeting children perform better academically, especially among ADHD children.

    Looks like fidgeting is as prevalent as ever, but it's in fashion now. Literally: it's a component of fashion. "Fidget rings" are a thing; this is the nicest example I could find, from KinektDesign.com, for $165, here in gunmetal finish:



    In action:



    Also available in a heart-shaped necklace, for the lady fidgeter among us.



    It gets weirder. I had the KinektDesign ring bookmarked for a while, but I wasn't sure this topic was Tool Talk worthy until I saw the product below.

    Prefer to do more direct, non-jewelry fidgeting? Do you favor a specific fidgeting activity, perhaps involving a non-spinning motion? Button clicking? Switch flipping? Enter "Fidget Cube", at $19 on Kickstarter.



    One fidget activity for each face of the cube. A few possibilities:







    A machinist building a custom fidgeting cube could do an extraordinary job, and it would be a very challenging build. Useful as a toy, an aid for a restless child, or just to enable the joy of fidgeting.

    I fidget.
    In fact someday, I'll finish my fidget cube.
    Of brick.
    With milling machines, big bandsaws, bigger lathes, or 24" shapers...
    All have the click function.
    Sincerely,

    Very disappointing video. Without recording of a high-revving V8 keyed to shift pattern, this is hardly entertaining.
    Or....
    As usual, I'm suspicious. This is certainly promoted by organized crime. As their crews age and retire, recruiting has become more intense.

    No toy, fidget or otherwise. Purpose is millennial training for those unsuccessful in technical education, or unsatisfied being harbored in a cubicle workstation.
    Intention, along with DVD copies of "Grand Theft Auto" is overcoming Millennial anti-theft device, as Auto Theft 101.
    Natural prerequisite to AT-102, introduction to the clutch pedal.
