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.
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 recommend thinking about the drop as a "set" rather than a "2-pack". Each of the versions has a completely different feel. We've found so many people who thought they would prefer one version but turned out to like a different one the most, and they complement each other giving the collection a richer experience than any one on its own.
With a bit of effort you can swap out the keycaps but you can't swap out the switches on these models. But we are listening closely to all suggestions, thanks.

I would buy a version with no switches to put my own in if you wanted to do something like that.
Or you can just buy at NovelKeys https://www.novelkeys.xyz/product-category/fidgets/

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.

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.

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.

It's actually about the same cost, as this is a two pack.
