NSK Micro Precision today announced the YEN SPIN, a new entry in its popular lineup of toys including the Chaos Maker Double Pendulum and Saturn Spinner deluxe fidget spinner.
NSK Micro Precision collaborated with long-time partners Soloham Co., Ltd. and Mitsumi Factory Limited Company in the planning, design, and development of the YEN SPIN to showcase “Made In Japan” and deliver a spintop that draws on leading-edge precision bearing technology from a century of Japanese monozukuri. The YEN SPIN is set to release this September, with pre-orders available via Kickstarter. Throughout development, the team considered how our collective wheel-of-fortune seems stuck during the ongoing pandemic. As bearings reduce friction, make rotation smooth, and prevent failures, NSK wanted to incorporate these ideas in creating a gadget to turn our luck around and make society brighter in this difficult time.
The YEN SPIN will make its debut on crowdfunding site Kickstarter on August 1st, a lucky day in Japan.
