This SPIKE contains a GOLD 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.
Recommended for ages 16+ due to glass construction and strong magnets.
