A wheel spinner is an online program that allows you to create a wheel similar to Wheel of Fortune and use it to make decisions and includes viewer interaction in streams and videos.

A spinner is a knockoff hub nut or center cap used on automobile wheels.

They may be actual or intended to simulate the design used on antique vehicles or vintage sports cars.

In contemporary usage, a "spinner wheel" is a hubcap or inner wheel ornament that spins independently inside the wheel itself while the vehicle is in motion and continues to spin after it has come to a stop.

This wheel works, how does it work?

A number picker wheel is used for this.

Both wheels work equally well. It's a random number generator wheel.

The picker wheel assists in spinning the wheel with our strength so that it will then give a random answer.

Creating the algorithm that gives the response is a very specialized process.

A tool like this can be made as a game and can be played or programmed in various ways.

Using numbers or alphabets, this kicker wheel can spin.

In addition, it can be divided into sections where you want Yes or No answers.

When you are unable to make a decision, this wheel can be attracted to help you make a decision.

One way to utilize this wheel could be to teach several courses regarding alphabets and numbers in a fun way.
