Jul 6 2010Please Tell Me That Didn't Come Out Of Magneto: Magnetic Silly Putty


Magnetic Thinking Putty is exactly what it sounds like if you replace 'Thinking' With 'Silly': $14 magnetic silly putty. BUT CAN IT STILL COPY THE FUNNIES?!

Magnetic Thinking Putty takes regular "silly" putty and turns its awesomeness up to 11. Like any other putty, it can be stretched, bounced, molded, popped, and torn. However, when this putty is in the presence of a magnetic field, it exhibits fascinating properties.

Millions of tiny micron-sized magnets are embedded in each handful of Magnetic Thinking Putty. Use the included super-strong neodymium iron boron cube magnet to control the putty like a snake charmer.

There's a time-lapse video of the putty swallowing its magnet after the jump, but be warned: it looks exactly like how I've always imagined a lady's parts. Kidding. No, no I'm not either. Admittedly, Magnetic Thinking Putty does sound fun, but I've already taken the concept one step further: broken glass putty. Here -- CATCH! Haha -- NOT SO SILLY NOW IS IT?

Hit the jump for a couple worthwhile videos.

I believe this may actually be the same symbiotic life form that turned eddie brock into venom.

looks like someone mixed iron filings with silly putty

I think this is a cover up, it's not really a toy. This "thinking putty" was designed to be used as weapon against the robot apacolypse...or something'

I can't wait for the follow-up post: "Magnetic Silly Putty Causes Tard Babies"

That pretty cool. Do you think it can swallow a walkman?


Fuking silly putty, how does it work?

SLIGHTLY DISTURBED.... yet strangely fascinated.

Cool and weird! Kind of reminds me of that simbiot thingy from Spiderman!

We all need to stock pile this stuff. This could be what saves us from the Robot Armageddon.

So its just ferrofluid in silly putty.
Not worth my money.

You mortals shall pale in comparison when i have the almighty THINKING PUTTY

broken glass putty, I laughed :)

I love this product now, because the company hates robots also. In their question page it says
"Q: If I'm a robot, does that mean I'm not allowed to play with this?
A: ZOMG, you're a robot!? Sorry, having fun with Magnetic Thinking Putty is a privilege reserved for humans."

Ironman's fucked up!

Those videos looked kinda like a time lapse. How fast is it really? If it takes a day to move 4 inches, NOT INTERESTED.

under the burning questions:
"Q: Will there a be a letters on it if you press it against a book or some newspapers like the original silly putty does?
A: In the mid-nineties, the inks used for printing started to change from petroleum-based to soy-based. These new inks don't lift off the paper as easily as the older inks. However, you can use the Magnetic Thinking Putty to lift pencil drawings with ease. The putty will also capture the outlines of laser-printed material."

We can use this to capture the robot invaders, or at least slow them down and kill them!

Who cares!!! My boyfriend thinks the same with me. He- is eight years older than me, lol. We met online at an age gap dating site [A_g_e_m_i_n_g_l_e @ c.//o.//m]---a nice and free place for Younger- Women and Older Men, or Older Women and Younger Men, to interact with each other. Maybe you wanna check out or- tell your friends

That scares me.

Today is my birthday and that would not be good.

Am I the only one who's reminded of the symbiote suit from spider-man?

Has been around for years

wow, it's alive! this blob is so cool

Thats kewl, wonder if it could be ued to help with metal salvaging somehow.

Also I thought that faggety typing 'First, or Uno, or whatever the fuck people type when they are the first comment, and they make no comment regarding the topic or video. Those people make me want to commit my first assault charge. . on there fingers with a small cast iron pan.

This is so cool. Reminds me of the game World of Goo.
