Can you still remember the hype surrounding the so-called fidget spinners? I’ve been getting back over the little ones for at least a while
Fans to turn yourself stumbled, especially in videos. But what I lightly dismissed as a pointless gimmick at the time is now catching up with me in a very positive and yet very different way.
What gadget are we talking about here? I’m talking about a so-called

Exactly these waiting times I find much less annoying thanks to my Infinity Cube. But even apart from benchmarks, I always pick it up for a moment. Be it listening in a longer meeting, taking a break when typing, researching a topic or proofreading.
There is a potential catch
Admittedly, it can sometimes happen that you feel something in the
rolling around loses or takes one or the other fidget break too much. All in all, I am very happy about my new gadget for the home office, also with regard to my efficiency when working.
