I’m sure some of you figured out what the poll and giveaway was for, but if you haven’t yet, here is your answer! I was trying to find out what the most suitable design would be to get a injection mold machined and the parts mass produced. I have been contacted numerous times by people asking if there was either a more affordable option, or if I had extra fidget spinners I could give away. I started to realized that there is a very large group of people who can’t afford even the cheapest spinner.I decided to do something about it. Kickstarter anyone?! Keep reading after the jump.
I decided to try and price out a fidget spinner for only $5. In order to do this I would need to pick one of the many designs I had already come out with. I ran a very successful giveaway(at the time of writing this I am just about to ship to the winners!) that had over 250 design choice submissions.
Here are the poll results from the giveaway. The Triplex and Trama were the winners, as I had anticipated. What edged the Trama over the Triplex is that it would be much more inexpensive to manufacture due to only having a single bearing. I should also note that I think the Trama is the nicest looking and the best spinner out of all of them!
The Kickstarter is going to launch January 24th and will run for 30 days. I have set a Goal of $5500.
Please share, like, etc. Lets get it funded! I’m excited to create an actual full blown mass produced product! Its about time.
