"We are very excited to release a product that can be semi-functional and just super distracting. Perhaps we should have stuck with our cat toy concept, but we decided to double down and make a product that we personally like and would use. After months of designing and testing, we are proud to release a high quality manufactured product with high-quality materials which is designed and made locally in Colorado."

What is a Thing of a Widget?

The Thing of a Widget is a bottle opener, screwdriver, wrench, pry bar, phone stand, cat toy, amazing fidget toy, and all around fun and sometimes useful widget. Currently, tests are being conducted to see if the Thing of a Widget can be used for other tasks including a bomb diffusion apparatus, glass blowing tool, signal generator, self-defense instrument, artist master tool (painting/wood), safecracker, cooking utensil, Saint Bernard toy, the device your uncle can't stop talking about, and “you know, that thing.” An update will be provided on the Thing of a Widgets capabilities, based on the samples that have sent out to various third-party labs.

The Thing of a Widget is a highly-engineered device with lockable linkages that allow the user to change and manipulate the shape. This product was designed to be small and lightweight so that it can fit on any standard tabletop or in a jean pocket.

Ben Skupsky, creator of Thing of a Widget, explains, “We are very excited to release a product that can be semi-functional and just super distracting. Perhaps we should have stuck with our cat toy concept, but we decided to double down and make a product that we personally like and would use. After months of designing and testing, we are proud to release a high quality manufactured product with high-quality materials which is designed and made locally in Colorado.”
