The Fidget Cube is a small hand-held device designed by Matthew and Mark McLachlan, brothers and co-founders of the Colorado-based design studio Antsy Labs.[1] It has sensory tools on all sides: a switch, gears, a rolling metallic ball, a small video game,a small plastic joystick, a spinning disk, a worry stone, and seven buttons.

Reception[edit]

In a positive review, The Verge described the cube as "basically a baby toy for adults".[2]
