Google’s Latest Easter Egg: Fidget Spinners!

Google’s Latest Easter Egg: Fidget Spinners!

Google’s Latest Easter Egg: Fidget Spinners!

Google’s fidget spinner works very simply by swiping the screen. Or, if you prefer, you can tap the “spin” button and watch it go on its own. It responds appropriately to fast and slow swipes, but unless you tap to stop it the spinner will go on forever.

Number Spinner

You can toggle between a fidget spinner and a number spinner. The number spinner is a wheel you can customize from 2 to 20 numbers. Unlike the fidget spinner, when you spin the wheel it will eventually stop and land on a number.

Go ahead and give them a try. But be warned: once you start fidgeting it’s hard to stop!
