The Thinket Now (Nickel & Acetal)
The GEN 3.0 Thinket® Now (Nickel & Acetal) is machined in #6061 Aluminum for the Handle (then plated with Nickel), and Black Acetal for the Slider-Heads, while the Slider-Tube is machined from #304 Stainless-Steel w/ a #32 machine finish. The specially grooved Slider-Heads are designed to accommodate special 15mm GID O-Rings for an additional, new haptic effect.
This newest Thinket form-factor adds a "reassuring-thud" effect to the soothing action called a "satisfying-bounce" that has always been delivered by every Thinket stress-relief device). The "reassuring-thud" effect was the primary motivation behind the most recent Thinket Kickstarter project called ("The Thinket Now, GEN 3.0), which was launched, funded, and successfully fulfilled in 2018.
The special new "thud" sensation is achieved by means of the custom-machined O-Ring grooves in the GEN 3.0 Slider-Heads; and several high-quality O-Rings are included with each Thinket Now for use with those grooves.
The Thinket Now (Nickel & Acetal) comes in an attractive drawstring-pouch for easy storage & transport.
