LiquiMetal uses ferrofluid nanotechnology consisting of iron nano particles (billionth of a meter), encapsulated in surfactant nano spheres. This encapsulation when mixed with a carrier oil allows the liquid to be manipulated with magnetic fields.
The neodymium magnet wand contains powerful rare earth magnets to control the density / fluidity of the ferrofluid and is designed to compliment the main display in form and function.
The permanent magnet and pin embedded in the cap enables an extra layer of interaction and a place for the ferrofluid to rest when not in use.
Made from high grade anodized aluminum, laser cut acrylic and glass.
Ferrofluid is remarkably difficult to work with as it likes to stick to any container you place it in, tends to deteriorate very quickly and reacts chemically with just about anything you use to stop those things from happening. LiquiMetal solved this issue in a suspension that is safe, cost effective and fully preserves the beauty of ferrofluid.
