#a131 :: The NeoCube

June 25, 2008

ENLARGEMagnetism enchants and mystifies me.

These 216 neodymium magnets – each 3mm thick – cling together in clouds when crushed, erectile in polyhedrons and exotic coils when aligned.

I roll them between my fingers, pharmacy and they snap together with the surety of pure particle physics. They form a collective entity, this site a hive colony of homogeneous individuals, and whole complexity.

They tug on my deepest childhood curiosity, my gnarliest gadget fetish hot-points. They are probably completely evil.

I found the NeoCube on some gadget blog or another. And ever since they – or it – arrived, I have run the serious risk of not getting a single goddamn thing done.

Check out the videos at your own peril. You have been duly warned.
