The fidget cube is a small plastic cube (known as a fidget toy) originally designed by Antsy Labs. It is equipped with various buttons and dials for fidgeting hands and it even be more classroom friendly then a fidget spinner because the fidget cube doesn't require visual attention. It can serve the same purpose as a fidget spinner, but they are more classroom-ready and less distracting, says Katherine Isbister, professor of Computational Media at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
This simple stress reliever was launched as a Kickstarter campaign in 2016. The original funding goal was a modest $15,000 USD, a target that has since been obliterated by the 34k+ fidgeters who have collectively pledged more than 1.3 million dollars to the cause. The Fidget Cube was one of the highest funded crowdfunding projects (the tenth highest funded Kickstarter project).
