Future of fidget spinners!

What is up all you dreamers out there!  This is the Dream-Eater coming to y’all Live from in my rotating basement. Today’s theory revolves around the new craze fidget spinners (no pun intended).

What are fidget spinners? Fidget spinners are little spinning toys for young people 10 and over. Some people have the urge to fidget something while they wait, study, or listen. The fidget spinner uses this concept and treats it, giving the user some fidgeting and stress relief. This is why most adults buy fidget spinners. The designer behind fidget spinners used this concept when making fidget spinners and has made millions off of it.

So while looking through amazon for these fidget spinners, I started thinking how can fidget spinners be used for more than just fidgeting around? My mind soon wandered to the thought of fidget spinner’s generating electricity. A scientist can put a little generator inside the center of a fidget spinner, and a battery in one of the three sides. If this was invented, you could generate electricity and charge the battery but it probably wouldn’t last long. However, if you can connect a charger to your smartphone and connect the charger wirelessly to the spinner, you could continuously charge your phone by just messing with the fidget spinner.

If you think about it, turning a fidget spinner into a wireless charger for your phone sounds like a possible idea. Although, it probably wouldn’t work the way we would like it. Let me know what you guys think about this idea in the comments below. Please press like on this post if you liked it, also like my facebook page. Thanks for reading, Dream out!

  1. Interesting. I have a bunch of Seiko watches that self wind through arm movement in various ways. All have a rotor inside which turns around kind of like your fidget device. One type is an all mechanical movement so that rotor winds a spring which is regulated by essentially a pendulum which has been wound into a metal spiral so it swings back and forth inside a watch. The other movement is called a Kinetic in which the rotor is bolted to generator which charges a battery which powers an electronic quartz watch movement. The other is a Spring Drive which goes back to winding a spring for a mechanical movement but as the spring unwinds it charges just a bit of electricity to vibrate a quartz crystal which is used to regulate the unwinding of the spring that charges it. The Spring Drive second hand just glides seamlessly around the watch’s dial as the spring unwinds. Unfortunately a Spring Drive timepiece does not come cheap, so it ends up being a pretty pricey wrist fidget tool. I guess we all have our own version of the fidget toy! Thanks for sharing! CS5711


  2. I like the way you think! My only concerns on the idea are that part of the draw to the fidget spinner is its smooth movement ease to use. If you were to put a mechanism that generates electricity from friction or kinetic movement it would take some of the fun out of the spinner. I’m not saying that it’s a bad idea! More so just trying to be a devil’s advocate for the products success. That being said, I think that the fact that the proposed product generates its own electricity more then makes up for being harder to spin.


  3. Lol that’s actually a really awesome idea! I’m so fidgety if I have to sit still for more than a hour. If I could use a fidget spinner and actually do something useful with it like charge my phone that would be the amazing. If you decide to create this and sell it on Kickstarter, let me know! CS5711
