This Web-Based Fidget Spinner Simulation Aims To Mesmerize

Struggling with fidget spinner addiction or just want to understand what all the fuss is about? Well, now there’s a way to do that from the comfort of your computer or mobile device.

Designer and developer extraordinaire Mike Bodge has crafted a virtual replacement for the latest toy craze, and like the latter, it can prove to be quite a satisfying side-activity for those brainstorming sessions. The claim that fidget spinners contribute towards stress relief might not yet have the scientific backing needed for it to be considered anything more than a marketing ploy, but there’s no denying that watching those little buggers twirl is mesmerizing. Bodge’s “FFFFidget” web app tries to emulate that.

The site features a simple fidget spinner graphic that can be twirled around or spun freely by simply clicking and dragging or swiping over one of the arms. You won’t be able to feel those tiny ball bearings spin in your hands, though it does a decent job of cloning the spectacle, complete with hue-changing background.
