Gone are the days of only finding simplistic, rounded-edge spinners that cause a certain uninspired reaction from anyone older than 10. Now, spinners can carry LEDs that make it glow three different colors while spinning. There are ornate, attention-grabbing spinners that seem more like art pieces than anything else. You can also find physics-driven double pendulum spinners, which carries two bearings on two moving arms. This ornateness also led to spinner accessories. Want a spinner with bearings of different colors, metal ridges, or licensed logos? Want spinners with different pivots? There are accessories for that.
Beyond the physical aspect, different industries use spinners for different purposes.

Moreover, spinners can offer an outlet for those with anxiety issues and ADHD complications to soother their symptoms.
