just buy the shell from their site for $10. thats what I did. its nice injected molded plastic. I added my own switches and clear DSA caps myself.
The switches can be swapped out for our own, correct? If not there is literally no point to this junk.
Urano_Metria
no, they are glued in. however, there is a non-assembled version available on their site.

I would hop on this if I could get only 1 for cheaper. Also, a choice of the color of keycaps and the body would be nice.
I just got the Clicky one in yesterday (black w/ white caps) -- Cherry MX Greens. Really neat little thing. I bought it for fun. Unfortunately it's SO pleasing to click them, that there's no way in hell I could take this thing to work. In my cubicle environment I'd get some serious heat, lol.
If you're in an office w/ a closed door or in the privacy of your own home though -- click away. :D
Does anyone else look at these and think of the Everlasting Gobstoppers from the 1970s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie?

This should not be $35. And certainly not before shipping is added.

For two?
Can't swap switches out? That's a no from me sorry.
Why buy 6 switches for $34 when you can buy 120 for $24 on the other drop?
No one requested this, wth? Isn't the fidget spinner craze over by now?

This doesn't even spin!

I have severe anxiety and ADHD, and as someone who loves mechanical keyboards and has those issues, this would be perfect for me if the switches were readily swappable. So you may not like it, but some of us appreciate it. I ordered 3 non-assembled versions from their site.
a video of someone playing with it would be nice

This is the original Kickstarter video from 8 months ago: https://youtu.be/LmjI1TZIOEY
price is way too steep.. there's not even any soldering involved.. just mold the plastic.. and snap the switches in... Assembly takes seconds. I'm printing one with my 3d printer... the file has been online for ages, but never got around to it.

It's a two-pack, so they are only $17.50 each.
BlueCrowned
17.50$ for... 6 inactive switches? That's a pretty ridiculous price.
These look nice but at 39.99 even for a 2 pack.. the fact they don't have swap-able switches is a deal breaker for me. There basically 20 dollars a piece while they look extremely well built. The functionality is just not there... at 39.99 for a two pack I would want at least removable switches and caps and more color options. There tons and I mean tons of unique keysets out there. Most people have least few key's left over from there builds this could be amazing way to get some use out of those sets. I also think this would make a amazingly wonderful key tester if it had removable switches. Most tester allow 1 - 2 key's and you click them once are twice.. to see how you like them. This fidget clicker you could put several of the key's you wish to test into it.. then take it off with you clicking it absentmindedly would give a better idea of how key's would affect your fingers long term on heavier weights
Is it possible to swap the switches out? I've got some obscure one offs it would be fun to put into one of these, and that would make it more appealing. I wish you had an option just to buy a single though, as it is now I'll only get it if I can find a friend who wants to split a 2-pack with me.

I would buy a version with no switches to put my own in if you wanted to do something like that.
What does “With a bit of effort you can swap out the keycaps” mean? it is because the gap between the keycap and the plastic is not enough to I see a key puller cord?

I'm not going to knock NovelKeys but theirs is very different. It is a 3D printed simple cube, which is fine and might be right for you. What you get from CLICKEYbits is a finished product. It is a proper plastic mold injected shell, and it is designed to roll in your hand more freely and not get your fingers caught under the keycaps. The design is meant for a much larger audience and to introduce a new generation of fidgeters to mechanical keyboards.
First Impressions, good build quality, easy to use, an all around good product! I put mine in my Beystadium against a few of my best Blades, and it really held its own! I was pleasantly surprised by the modern aesthetic and high performance of this designer Beyblade. 9.5/10!
OK, what is the Real Life application of this contraption? Is there a purpose behind it? What is the reason for its existence?

This is actually great question. We all want mechanical keyboards to be cheaper. How do we get there? We get more people interested which increases sales which lowers prices and increased variety. How do we get a new generation into mechanical keyboards? We hand a kid or a college one of these. First introduce the clicky and then the silent, explaining they are real keyboard buttons. I love to then hand them a Classic and explain it, with the Red (gamer's love to save a millisecond), the Brown (tactile response so you don't bottom out on long typing sessions), and the Blue (my favorite as a work-at-home programmer). By the end of the conversation they are ready to buy a real keyboard. And also they are just fun to fidget with.
solution: stop fidgeting!

Fidgeting can keep you from doing these things. I chew up my fingers but with fidget toys I have something else to occupy my hands. I keep a tangle toy and a cheap spinner on my desk.
BlueCrowned
mostly i just keep twirling my pens...
Make cheaper, make different switch options, make the base a sphere - These are my suggestions.

but how would they get the reser switches, and why would anyone want them?
It does actually say in the specs.
$45.84 LOL
Why would you buy this? You can get a 12 key fidget from Novelkey for $25 and pick from a huge range of switches.
paecific.jr
To be fair, it appears that the build quality and design on this product far exceeds the 12-key fidget over at NovelKeys so that's one major reason to purchase this higher-priced fidget. I mean on the NovelKeys Fidget you can clearly see the 3D-printed substructure that they adhere the switches to and the keys just stick out in the air unsupported which puts them at higher risk of getting snapped off when loose in someone's bag.
aGalban
It's actually about the same cost, as this is a two pack.
Looks cool but way too expensive IMHO. But hey! At least one person already bought one.
These look fun, but I'd only be interested if we know for sure we can change the switches in them. It looks like they just snap into place like you'd expect, but I don't know for sure (and it's not mentioned).
Bluetooth functional version please?
boolean-julien
I can't tell if you're serious.
BlueCrowned
Totally serious. I tinker with turning peripherals into musical instruments, and this could be a really fun one.
I made one on my 3D printer for probably less than $5. Lol. (As seen on Reddit)

Your is low profile, I printed high profile one :D Too bad I never really used it...
mikethetiger
Awesome! If you get some printed for sale, count me in for one or two.
How to change the switch with user's preferences?
Could get a better version of this on novel keys for half the price Edit: just saw it's a pack of two so my bad you could get a better version of this on novel keys for the same price.
TheSkeleton
I thought this was the one that guy on Reddit originally made or printed. Wrong?
BrainFlush
I really don't know tbh I was referring to novel keys dodecahedron switch tester.
