    Man, I want a couple of those! I assume that they're powerfully magnetized beads.

    Yes, they are sold on the site advertized in the movie. I can't decide if I deserve a gift or not...

    I can't help thinking how convenient they're be for hiding things. Who'd think of trying to open up an apparently solid geometric ornament to find your BC bud or spare cash? :biggrin:

    Oh god, I think I have to buy one. I wonder what magnets like that do to nearby electronic things...

    Yeah... beats the hell out of my Rubik's Magic, since you don't have to worry about breaking it.

    Sounds like a bad idea to me. Who wouldn't think to play around with such a neat little toy?

    Pretty neat.

    But if it's just sitting around as a desk or shelf ornament, nobody would think of it being a toy. If the video is indicative of it's performance, it would appear to be a solid object, especially if you configure it into something artistic. (That's why I mentioned wanting a couple rather than just one; more internal volume and external shapes available if you combine them.)

    Wow, for some reason watching the video makes me happy.

    Me too. I guess that we both need to get a life. :biggrin:

    Money doesn't make a man happy. Having balls does. LOL
