This 'Magnetic Putty' Experiment Is Just Insane

You can buy a lot of weird stuff on the internet. We knew that already. But to that ever-expanding list we today add this terrifying-looking 'magnetic putty'.

And as it turns out, it's a lot more fun if you buy an absolutely ridiculous amount.

A new commercial for Vat19's putty shows what happens when you take 100lbs of the stuff, and play with it using a very strong magnet.

As to what use you'll get out of buying a much smaller amount, we couldn't say. But if anyone wants to send us a barrel load and a few other magnets, we'll dig out those sketches for our patented hoverboard concept and give it a good old go.
