Stackable Interlocking Spinner Buttons
With the spinner craze in full swing and people having multiple spinners I have seen people stacking up their spinners just because you can. Problem is its unstable. So I came up with an interlocking spinner button that has some heft to it.
But I didn’t stop there
Some spinners are not designed to set down and spin so I came up with a spinner base for your spinner to live on your desk to display and enjoy alternatively.
Finally I was not satisfied any spinner I got my hands on. So I came up with one that I felt was easy to flick and spin without some special finger contorting maneuver that you need to learn instead of just naturally picking it up and make it ‘go’. I made it the size of a typical domino and put strategic groves in it that I call “trigger points”. No matter where it lands on your finger its easy to flick and spin. I call it the Dem Bones Spinner because every time pick it up it makes me think of a domino.
I have already had the prototypes made through a machine shop and have gotten quotes on cost and quantities. The goal of this Kickstarter is to raise enough for a larger order to keep cost down. The stackable spinner buttons are made on CNC lathe with live tooling. To make these in small quantities is cost prohibitive.
Risks and challenges
I have already taken most of the risks. I have over 15 years experience in CAD/CAM design and manufacturing. The biggest risk would be in managing larger order and meeting timeframes. I plan to mitigate that by limiting order quantities and managing time frames accordingly.
