Abstract

The objectives of this project were to create a cognitive focus device, a business plan, and discuss whether fidgets can relieve oneself of the world’s anxieties. The results were our product, the Fidget Egg, its commercialization, and a discussion about how some people center themselves through the use of sacred or secularized objects. The conclusions are: the Fidget Egg empowers consumers to direct their focus, there is no ideal fidget, and there may be a correlation with fidgets and industrialization.
