While it may seem like the fidget spinner fad has run its course, we just came across a new 3D printed one that may change some minds. Researchers from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL)—not your typical toy factory—have created what is most certainly the world’s smallest fidget spinner using additive manufacturing technology. World’s smallest fidget spinner, as seen through a microscope The tiny spinning device, which measures only 100 microns in width (about the width of a human hair), was made by ORNL’s Center for Nanosphase Materials Sciences (CNMS) using a Nanoscribe 3D printer. Typically, the Nanoscribe machine […]
