Since many threads and post on ATS are discussing the current depressing event in Boston. I thought it would be fun to share this awesome video. Everyone has to be familiar with magnets and how magnets work. There is a video where magnetic putty consumes metal objects. Imagine a miniature blob eating metal. It's weird how awesome the video is. Just seeing magnetic silly putty consuming random metal objects.


Filmmaker Joey Shanks describes it as “magic” or a “strange material.” A commenter said it’s “like a constrictor consuming a rat.” What is it? Magnetic putty. The putty, like the type dubbed Super Magnetic Thinking Putty® from Putty World, is designed to “attract one magnetic pole and repel from the other.” Shanks, in coordination with PBS Digital Studio, showed off the mesmerizing properties of the material in a recent video.

I don't what adult robot material you're thinking about. But it is a great video to watch when you're bored. Something to pass the time.

Yeah, pretty cool. I saw something on it elsewhere. It's silly putty with iron or magnetic particles or something like that and so it naturally attracts the metal square which keeps moving inside the putty until it is dead center and then stops.

Imagine a big one of these in downtown NYC!

I was going to ask what it was, thanks, I want some as long as it doesn't attack.

What an awesome video! That looks like it would be much more fun than silly putty!

That was so cool to watch


Will it or does it have a practical application ?
Seems like it could be useful some-how.

Why?

Permanent magnets are a pretty old discovery.

Magnetic Putty!

Super awesome stuff and looks really cool in time lapse. Here is a video from HouseholdHacker making his own batch of the stuff.



It's a shame it doesn't absorb into the putty as fast as the ones shown in your OP video, gotta use time lapse

Mix it with gallium, mercury, some bismuth and whatever else you need to make a ferrous metal LME, and this stuff will crawl into place and fracture it. Crawling death for ferrous parts.

I think this 'strange material' is something we should all have in our BOB's.

Consider a scenario similar to that of The Terminator, the movie. After the machines attack and people begin to form groups to fight back, we can pool our 'strange material', set traps or throw it on the machines, engulfing and disabling them one by one.

Rise of the Humans!

Pretty sure they've already used magnets for weapons.

Not as effective as you'd hope.

Awesome clip tho OP. The guy is quite artistic with it. Ofc/ it's time lapse which I think some are not getting, but even so.. it does look organic.

Like a flower closing.

Magnets... you jsut can't explain them...
