THE FIDGETRIX STORY
OUR STORY STARTS HERE
In December of 2016, I headed to the 3D Printing Innovation Center at the University of Maryland to print a quickly sketched design of a puppy for my baby cousin. I was about two months into my 3D printing experience when I heard about these new tools called fidget spinners on Instagram. Immediately, I thought to myself, this would be a perfect gift for my brother's birthday. Hours passed which seemed like minutes at the time and I had myself a fidget spinner without the bearing. I remember being so excited later that day as I went on the internet and bought myself the first bearing I could find - a 608 steel bearing. What happened next changed everything...
After days working in the lab, I came up with all kinds of funny-looking designs for fidget spinners and I was excited to give it to my friends. My brother loved it. His friends loved it. My friends loved it. It was in that moment, I knew I was tapping into something big. This was way more than just a toy. It's a tool and an aid for my fidgety habits. It was an answer to my ADHD and a helpful tool for people all around the world.
And so Fidgetrix was born as a way to unite fellow fidgeters and build a community. We first started off with a blog and some 3D printed fidget spinners. On these platforms, I shared my knowledge about the benefits of fidget spinners and provided design inspiration for others. Ultimately, the goal was to provide people with a simple tool to relieve stress, tackle anxiety, and help with attention problems.
We continued interacting with fellow fidgeters on Facebook, Reddit, and YouTube. It was very rewarding to share my experiences of struggling with bad habits, and connecting with other individuals who struggled with my same challenges. Hopefully, my experiences and words helped those with these same challenges get the tools needed to improve the quality of their everyday life.
Fidgetrix was very small at this point, but I always had a larger vision for what it could become. Many people would doubt the potential of the company and call it a niche market with no room for growth. They would ask, "what happens when this fidget spinner fad ends?" The simple answer to this question is; "the fidget spinner is a life-long buddy and tool, and Fidgetrix will be leading the charge."
