If you were to pop into Cool Material HQ, you’d find a bunch of desks with toys on top of them. Not little kid toys and action figures—though, there are a few of those—but attractive, professional time-wasters that help us when we need to concentrate and look good when not in use. The newest one of us will be adding is Vortecon. The spinning desk toy is hypnotic when you give it a spin, creating an optical illusion of a flowing helix. Machined from stainless steel, brass, or copper, the Vortecon is right at home in any place of business. It spins silently and is addictive to play with. You can back it on Kickstarter now and even take advantage of an early bird special if you act quickly enough.
