If the Kickstarter video for the successfully funded Fidget Cube is any indication, fidgeting is a serious problem –– but it just may also be the key to increased focus, too.

While some may resort to aggressively folding gum wrappers or twirling a pen between their fingers, Fidget Cube creators Matthew and Mark McLachlan have effectively combined what they think are six of the most satisfying “fidgeting sensations” into one ridiculously simple device.

In total, the small cube enables antsy fidgeters the ability to click buttons, glide a joystick, flip a switch, rub a smooth worry stone-like surface, spin a dial and finally, roll a ball or built-in gears:

An unusually addicting, high-quality desk toy designed to help you focus. Fidget at work, in class, and at home in style.

“It’s not uncommon to hear fidgeting being spoken about negatively,” explain the McLachlans. “It’s often labeled as unprofessional and deemed as anti-intellectual behavior. But in reality, the exact opposite has been suggested to be the case.”
