With a rise in the diagnosis of ADD and ADHD, more attention has been put into studying ways to keep people who suffer from these disorders focused and at ease. One of the prevailing theories is that there’s something called ‘floating attention,’ which can result in a compulsion to keep one’s self busy. This manifests in a number of different ways, all of which fall into the category of ‘fidgeting.’ Noticing that they struggled with this themselves, the folks at Antsy Labs decided to do something about it. They invented the Fidget Cube.
A six-sided cube featuring a number of different buttons, a switch, a gliding joystick, a rotating dial, an ovular depression, and a ball bearing, this desktop oddity offers a number of different ways to keep one’s hands busy in a way that may help increase individual focus without annoying the people that surround you. This pocket-sized cube is compact enough to take it anywhere you go, comes in one of eight different color schemes, and is made from durable vinyl. When it goes on sale, the Fidget Cube will retail for $25. [Purchase]
