OSM = Object for Spatial Manipulation = a kaleidoscopic sculpture made of disks = pronounced "awesome". No joke. "OSM" sounds out as "awesome" because its designers have astutely noticed that that's exactly what this endlessly inward-turning and blooming distraction from productivity is.

Six identical disks constitute the entirety of OSM's makeup. They snap apart for mixing black and white models, as well as connecting multiple sets to create new sculptures and long OSM chains.

They say the OSM functions primarily to occupy idle hands and relieve stress. Sort of like masturbation. Which is also OSM.
