This Fidget Cube is taking Kickstarter by storm

​The end of clicking pens?

We all know those people that make working in an office a clicking, tapping hell. 

Instead of gritting your teeth and thinking of extreme ways to cease the pen-clicking forever, though, a device designed to satisfy both fidgeters and people within earshot will soon be available. 

Named the Fidget Cube, the device offers six clickable, flickable and spinning sides with different levels of noise. The vinyl toy is billed as a desk gadget for, as you might guess, those who can't help but harness the annoying potential of surrounding objects.

As any serial fidgeter can attest, the habit is a problem - a serious problem that is perfectly parodied in the promo below. 

Not only have Antsy Lab creators Matthew and Mark McLachlan provided some good humour when it comes to launching their device, but their Kickstater project is shaping up to be the most lucrative ever. Seriously. 

At the time of writing, the Fidget Cube has collected a smidgen under $4m, sending its initial $15,000 target into hyperspace. With almost 100,000 backers and 35 days of the campaign left to run, the only problem facing fidgeters will be hoping the company can keep up with demand. 

The previous record for the most-funded project is, predictably, a card game called Exploding Kittens, which raised $8.8m.

For those worrying their Fidget Cubes will never reach them, the brothers behind the project have already taken to the page to allay fears: "We have read your concerns regarding shipping and whether or not we will be able to ship by December. What we can tell you is it's STILL our goal and will remain our goal until we are proven otherwise. 

"We plan to have a much clearer picture in the coming weeks and will keep you posted. That said, we do appreciate the countless comments saying that quality is more important than an earlier ship date."

Until then, just keep dodging the aerial assaults from co-workers while you tap your way through the working day.
