50 ingenieros se unieron para crear el mejor fidget spinner del mundo (y tardaron tanto que pasaron de moda)

¿Te acuerdas de los fidget spinners? Se pusieron de moda en el verano de 2017 y pasaron de moda unas horas más tarde. El tema es que una compañía japonesa llamada MinebeaMitsumi Inc. lleva seis meses trabajando en el “fidget spinner con la rotación de mayor duración del mundo”. Y, bueno, habrá que ver lo que han conseguido aunque el juguete ya no interese a nadie.

The Most Googled 'How-Tos' of 2017 Prove Our Insatiable Lust for Slime and Bitcoin

Every December, Google releases “The Year in Search,” which sheds light on what the world was most interested in during the last spin around the sun. This year, the company added the most popular “how-to” searches to its global list—and in 2017 they are strange and kind of bleak.

Here Is a Pretty Excellent Video of a Fidget Spinner Spinning in Space

Look: If we’re being honest, fidget spinners are pretty played out at this point. Or at least they are ... on Earth. It turns out that fidget spinners remain extremely cool if you have access to a massive spacecraft and a low-gravity environment.

NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik, who is stationed on the International Space Station, recently took some time to demonstrate that you can just set one...

A Bluetooth 'Gaming Fidget Spinner' Was Always the Only Way This Ends

It was preordained by the fad gods. After cheating death for months, it seems the fidget spinner will finally be sacrificed at the altar of The Phone, its natural foe.

A company called Fidgetly has opted to perform the ritual, creating a fidget spinner that doubles as a “360-degree motion game controller.” Called CTRL, the device currently available for pre-sale connects to phones so users...

Fidget Spinners Are Good

We all fidget. We swing our headphones, we peel twigs and tear cardboard coasters, we flip pens around our thumbs and split the ends of our hair. Do we really need to explain, rationalize and lend science to the newest fidget toy?

Sure, you’ll feel like a dumbass while you play with it. But here’s the thing: Fidget spinners are fine. They are a children’s toy.

Like lawn darts, nano-magnets , and slap bracelets, fidget spinners are only one stupid stunt away from becoming yet another forgotten fad. And as usual, instead of enjoying them responsibly, the internet is hard at work trying to find ways to make spinners as dangerous as playing with firecrackers. This is why we can’t have fun things.

It goes without saying, but we’re going to say it...
