SPIKE ferrofluid display (Blue ferrofluid)

Regular price $59.00 Sale

This SPIKE contains a blue/purple metallic color-shifting ferrofluid!

The SPIKE Ferrofluid Display is a mesmerizing interactive kinetic sculpture containing a paramagnetic liquid called ferrofluid. It was originally created by NASA as a prototype rocket fuel, unique in that it could be fed into the rocket engines using magnets in zero gravity. It becomes highly magnetized in the presence of a magnetic field and forms large spikes and other organic shapes.

We created the SPIKE to showcase this amazing liquid in a mesmerizing blend of art and science. It contains 7ml of high quality ferrofluid (synthesized by Ferrotec)  enclosed in a beautiful aerospace grade anodized aluminum and lab quality glass enclosure. It includes a very powerful handheld magnet that you use to interact with it.

Amazing item!

People come by my cubicle all the time just to take the magnet and mess with the SPIKE ferrofluid. I work a support job so it keeps not only myself entertained but others as well! I'll definitely be getting the others down the road!

Fun to see the multiple peaks!

It's fun to see the multiple peaks that change in number with the strength of the magnetic field! Nicely made and instructive. Looks even better when the blue fluid is illuminated by a strong LED light.

Super fast shipping and super cool product

I had a great experience ordering and receiving my ferrofluid. My husband is a chemistry teacher and this will be an anniversary gift for him to have in his classroom. I made an error when ordering and got help almost immediately. The product arrived within a couple of days and I’ve been having so much fun “testing it out” before I give it to my husband. Highly recommend MTR Designs!
