SPIKE ferrofluid display (Red ferrofluid)

SPIKE ferrofluid display (Red ferrofluid)

Regular price $59.00 Sale

This SPIKE contains a RED 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.
  • Chemicals are non-toxic
  • Materials: Anodized aluminum, glass, stainless steel, nickel and brushed aluminum
  • Dimensions: 2.5" x 2.5" x 4.5"
  • Contains 7ml of high quality ferrofluid manufactured by Ferrotec

Very fun little 'sculpture'

I got this for my son (who'd seen a lot of videos on ferro-fluids). He loved it. The only issue I have is that the red-dye dissipates in the water which is left cloudy. If I were to buy it again, I would get the version without the dye.

It's Awesome, but one minor problem

It's a great conversational item, I have it a work next to my computer (probably not the best place for it) and my coworkers love playing with it! Some thought it was a living thing (like a weird sea urchin) until it gets played with. I just have to tell them that the fluid might stain the glass if you keep the magnet on it. However the only problem I have with it is when you mess with it the red paint gets mixed up and it becomes a red snowglobe for a couple of hours


MY wife LOVES her Birthday present. THANK YOU!!!!


Bought this and the blue one and it was delivered within a week. It's a beautiful deep red and so much fun. Have to fight the kids just to have a turn. Highly recommend
