Putty by itself is nothing special, but PBS Digital Studios and Shanks FX have partnered to bring you a video showing exactly what its magnetic counterpart can do to metallic objects. According to the manufacturer: “When a strong, Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB) magnet is held close to our Quicksilver Thinking Putty, you probably won’t feel anything at first. Once Quicksilver is charged by a magnet, you can flip it backwards to feel it actively repel the NdFeB magnet.” Continue reading for a video and more information.
After Quicksilver is charged by your NdFeB magnet, it will lift paperclips, tacks, and other lightweight ferrous materials. It can even magnetize small metal objects on its own.
