Meg Dattoria, a Washington DC-based artist, created a collection of rings dubbed 'Fidget Rings' in response to her habits of restlessness. When people are restless like Dattoria, anxious or nervous, they tend to fidget. From biting their nails to tapping their feet, people have their own ways of fidgeting.

A common fidgeter motion involves playing with jewelry. Many people, especially women, tend to fiddle with their rings. Meg Dattoria came up with six models of stretchy rings that mimic the natural paths human hands follow when they fidget with rings. Some of them incorporate spinning and rolling balls, sliding discs and a seesaw-like mechanism.

In addition to aiding fidgeters, the rings can also assist those with ADHD, Aspergers and autism to re-concentrate their erratic energies.
