Thanks to Jonathan Odom, a clever designer and builder who’s created everything from animatronics for films to museum exhibits, the fidget spinner has just taken a giant leap forward. Odom created One Spinner To Rule Them All: one with an animated cat video that comes to life when you flick it.
Based on an old-timey device called a Zoetrope, Odom designed his fidget spinner using modelling software, and then printed it out using a MakerBot 3D printer. The simple animation of a cat running inside was actually based on a motion study of felines created by photographer Eadweard Muybridge back in the 19th century. And unlike that Super Mario fidget spinner that requires a camera to see its animation, the thin slits encircling Odom’s fidget spinner means the running cat effect can be seen with the naked eye.

To the naked eye, someone slicing through steel using a high-temperature plasma torch just looks like a massive shower of sparks.
That bizarre warping effect of the fidget spinner in motion is a result of the rolling electronic shutter on the smartphone camera being used.
Even the Ewok bits are tolerable.
They won't make you hungry. They'll make you want to crawl up in a ball and cry.
