We all fidget from time to time. Sometimes we do it when we’re bored, sometimes we do it when we’re nervous, or for some of us, we just can’t sit still. Whether it be tapping on the table, drumming your hands on your lap, tapping your feet, shaking your legs, clicking a pen, etc., we’ve all done it.

However if you’re looking for a fun and entertaining way to fidget, you might be interested in a device called the Fidget Cube, a project on Kickstarter that has garnered a lot of attention in the recent weeks, and at this time of posting, has managed to raise close to $2.5 million, way, way past its original and humble goal of $15,000.

So what is the Fidget Cube? Basically it’s this tiny cube-like device with various button and switches on its surface. For example there are buttons that you could press, there’s also a D-pad like surface that you can glide around on, there’s also a switch that you can keep flicking, there are also gears (like those on your combination locks) that you can spin, a dial that you can spin around like a volume knob, and last but not least there’s a smooth indentation that is supposed to soothe your mind and reduce stress when rubbed.

We have to admit that this is as novel as they come, but we can’t help but imagine that it looks pretty fun as hell too in a “I’m bored and there’s nothing to do” kind of way. The Fidget Cube is priced at $19 (early bird versions are sold out) and if you’d like to pledge your support, head on over to its Kickstarter page or watch the video above for the details.
