It would appear that the interest is there for another run of these spinners. I've started a list of people who are interested in purchasing a spinner. I have also started the process to build the next batch of 20. Please keep in mind that this is going to take a few months to put together. I will try to contact people once they are ready to go.


If 20 units doesn't cover everyone, I will start yet another run of spinners if time allows.

My comments on this Cyclone Spinner:



Exceeded my expectation. 


I’ve wanted that Tempest feel ever since the first time I played arcade Tempest. 

This delivers!


A weighted spinner that spins. 

The weighted disc gives momentum, and the grab/stopping resistance to change direction is perfect. 

The use of an optical mouse inside means a high resolution tracking with consistent motion output (not old mouse tech that used spinning wheels with holes and emitters and sensors). Less things to get dirty, less things to fail. The only thing that spins is the weighted disc. 


The included bolts to the aluminum bracket makes mounting solid. Also included was the knob Allen Wrench to tighten that to the shaft, nice!


No buttons, but that simplifies things, making this just a spinner. 


I mounted mine in an extra deep cigar box. A project I casually did while watching a retro games stream. Simple enough.
