The craze surrounding fidget spinners may have died down, but the legacy of developing a simple tool to help students, workers and others with mental or emotional problems relieve stress remains.

Enter Yao Stone, a silent handheld gadget that can be pushed, pulled, spun or even worn on backpacks or clothing in order to calm people down or help beat a bad habit.

The designers, White Bean Studio, say they have combined meditation beads with new technology in order to help an average person’s lifestyle and sense of well-being. The company says the Yao Stone is applicable for students, workers, people at home or anyone that may have unhealthy stress.

The gadget is designed to not just reduce stress but also help in combating bad habits such as nail biting, fidgeting and leg shaking as well as other habits.

White Bean Studio has begun a Kickstarter campaign in order to drum up support for the Yao Stone and you can check out that campaign by clicking here.
