Well we're not ashamed to say that fidget spinners seemed to take over the office for a little while. It's always good to have a bit of fun, although it did split opinions in the office into the haves and the have nots!
One designer (Jonathon Odom) saw a way to convert a fidget spinner into something to use for animation. It takes advantage of the old method of animating using a zoetrope. He printed a strip of paper with different stages of a cat running, 3D printed a cleverly designed fidget spinner and put the two together.
Here is the result:
It's a great use for the gadget!
