Anybody got one yet? They seem to be the going fad right now. They are suppose to relieve stress and have been advertised as helping people who have trouble with focusing or fidgeting (such as those with ADHD, autism, or anxiety) by acting as a release mechanism for nervous energy or psychological stress.

In my day we had "Clackers"! Anyone remember those death devices? Two big ol glass balls hanging on strings... If you didn't know what you were doing, you could literally knock yourself out!

If you did like the woman that invented them years ago you wouldn;t make a dime. She let her patent expire and as soon as it did everyone started making them. She gets nothing from it at all.

I read the story about the lady that claimed to have invented it. She's using the term "invented" very loosely. She had a patent for a propeller looking thing built around a thimble looking dome. It fit over a finger and in theory would spin around a few times. She's comparing that to these things that have nearly frictionless bearings and will spin for 5 minutes at a time.

It's the bearings that fascinate me

Yeah, I remember those! Had a neighbor who had a set. Then they came out with plastic ones, those weren't nearly as much fun. ;-)
