Fidget: make small movements, especially of the hands and feet, through nervousness or impatience.
Hello. My name is Brad, and I fidget. Oh, am I in the wrong meeting? In any event. I do. Sitting still just isn’t something I’m good at doing. My fidgeting tends to be in my legs. If I’m sitting, odds are one of my legs is always bouncing. If you’ve watched any of the UTB Blogcasts you might think that earthquakes in California are just a constant thing. No, that’s not a quake, that’s just my leg bouncing under the desk. I’ve got to admit, that the Kickstarter project Fidget Cube by aptly named Antsy Labs has piqued my interest.
The Fidget Cube was made for people like me. It is a cube, with six sides that are sure to keep a fidgeter’s hands busy. From switches, to buttons, even a gamepad style joystick, it gives variety to fidgeting hands. There are 8 different color schemes, the Midnight looks great, but that Kickstarter Edition has such a nice color of green as well!
The Fidget Cube started with a Kickstarter pledge of $14 but that reward level quickly sold out. Now you can jump on board the Kickstarter with a $19 pledge for one Fidget Cube, with pledge amounts raising for multiple cubes. After the Kickstarter, the Fidget Cube shall retail for around $25 so you can support the product and get a discount now. The Fidget Cube has smashed the $15,000 Kickstarter goal and is currently sitting at over $3,000,000 pledged. I guess there are a lot of fidgeters out there. As for me? I can’t wait to get my hands on one.
