Maybe you fidget because you're anxious. Because you're bored. Because you have ADHD. Because you're 5 minutes away from walking into the biggest interview of your life. Because you just drank 11 cups of coffee. Now fidgeters both young and old, genetically cursed by the ticks and bounces, and circumstantially prompted to exhibit them alike, can help maintain bodily control by funneling their excess energy into Fidget Rings.

Meg Dattoria, a Washington DC artist, created the Fidget Ring series in response to her own tendency to move restlessly during monotonous or taxing activities. Each of her 6 models mimics one of the natural paths human hands tend to follow when they fidget. Dattoria hopes the rings will help contain these often distracting and unnerving movements "in a quiet, personal, and elegant way." In addition to benefitting everyday fidgeters, the rings can also assist in concentrating the erratic kinetic energies that sometimes accompany ADHD, Asperger syndrome, and autism.

All Fidget Rings are fabricated partly by hand and partly using 3D printing technologies. Plastic models are 3D-printed in acrylic photopolymer and hand-dyed. Metal rings are made of a bronze-steel composite. Styles include rings with spinning/rolling balls, sliding discs, and a seesaw-like mechanism for silent tapping and pressing.
