One’s fidgeting may be an annoying behavior for the rest but not for two inventors, who recently raised a whopping $1.2 million funding courtesy their new creation, the Fidget Cube. This unique, pocket-sized desk toy has six faces packed with clickers, a roller, a switch and a spinner, all of which are perfect fidgeting elements that let a user vent out their stress.

The Fidget Cube reproduces the calming sensation that nervous people derive from behavior like shaking their legs, clicking pens, or tapping fingers against a hard surface, notes The Tech News. However, the accompanying noise of fidgeting vanishes to the reprieve of your family members or coworkers.

Brothers Matthew and Mark McLachlan, co-founders of Denver-based Antsy Labs that makes this fidgety toy, admitted that the overwhelming success of their Kickstarter campaign has left them surprised especially because many people thought the product was rather funny than a solution, writes Forbes.
