Look At This 150-Pound Fidget Spinner Built By UTD Students

It may be the largest in the world. Coming soon: The world's first self-aware fidget spinner.

Are we still doing fidget spinners? Hope so. This one’s really big.

Four University of Texas at Dallas students—Pratik Bhosale, Ian Bouton, Suhail Rahmetulla, and Clark Oney—spent about 20 hours and $150 assembling the spinner from four bearings. With a diameter of 45 inches in motion, it may be big enough to qualify as the world’s largest. The students are waiting on word from the Guinness Book of World Records.

In the meantime, here’s a video of the spinner in action, set to a snappy hip-hop beat.
