Part sculpture, part toy, part perfect time waster, the OSM — or Object for Spatial Manipulation — is like a kaleidoscope brought into the 3D world that you can manipulate and morph without having to look through a faux telescope.
Comprising six interlocking plastic discs, the $10 distraction doesn’t require you to solve any puzzles or unlock any mysteries. It’s simply there for your enjoyment, ready to help you kill a few minutes, or pass the time during a phone conference when nobody can see you. Available in black and white, the OSM’s can be mix and matched, or even combined into one epic distraction that may prevent you from ever getting work done again. [Hopson Kinetic via Notcot]
