NSK Micro Precision, a major Japanese ball bearing maker located in Kanagawa Prefecture, recently claimed it has created the world’s best fidget spinner.
According to NSK Micro Precision Co. president, Toshikazu Ishii, the company is very confident that its version of the fidget spinner has the capability to spin much longer compared to the standard in the market today. In fact, the test that was conducted at AFP’s Tokyo bureau showed that the wheel-shaped Saturn Spinner managed to whirl for 13 minutes and 35 seconds, Japan Times reported.
The number is nonetheless remarkable. Ishii explains that the secret behind it is the spinner’s design. The item is built with a heavy brass frame with light aluminum ball bearing, which greatly helps with the centrifugal force.
If the data is in fact accurate, then this new fidget spinner could be revolutionary considering that normal spinners in the market can only hold their spin for a few minutes – at most. However, not everyone will be able to buy this toy.
A single piece of this fidget spinner will cost ¥17,280 ($157). Normally, a standard spinner has a market price of $12 or less, depending on the quality.
Is it worth the money?
