This Giant Spinning Toy Could Be the World's Largest Fidget Spinner

Fidget spinners are popular in America, but the trend appears to be bigger—both literally and figuratively—in Finland, where YouTube personalities (and real-life married couple) Anni and Lauri Vuohensilta teamed up to make a 33-pound version of the toy.

For the uninitiated, the Finnish factory owners host the popular Hydraulic Press Channel, which features them crushing objects with a 100-ton hydraulic press. They created another YouTube channel, Beyond the Press, where they post videos of themselves conducting dangerous-sounding experiments. (Example: "Can you flush a toilet with explosives?")

In the two Beyond the Press videos below, you can watch the destructive duo as they use a Prenta M3 3D printer to make the massive plastic gadget. They bill it as the world’s largest fidget spinner—and seeing as how it requires two hands to spin and a leaf blower to move, their claim might just be correct.
