Looking to de-stress? These cool devices will make you think beyond the fidget spinner
Fidget spinners are getting weirder by the day (from an edible cookie version to one with lip gloss), and many are loving it. There is also a fidget spinner app that topped iOS rankings, taking the craze to a whole new level. We look at other de-stressing gadgets to shift your attention to.
Bearing a stark resemblance to one of the totems (objects used to distinguish between dream state and reality) shown in the movie Inception, Forever Spin is a spinning top that boasts of a nearly friction-less rotation over a stainless steel base, and is available in over 10 colours. Made of high-quality alloy and metal, it is manufactured in Canada. Details: foreverspin.com

Random Stress Ball
When Yanko Design shared this prototype of a stress ball that has words printed on its surface, we realised it is very similar to Egg Map (it has maps replaced with words). However, to make out what the words are, you need to press the ball and enlarge the area where the word ispresent. Nothing like a stress-relieving dictionary, is there? Details: yankodesign.com
