Deceptively entertaining – Neodymium NIB Magnet Spheres (6mm / 20-Pack) Reviews

posted by frills on 07/03/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Very strong.
Smooth, hard to pinch yourself with them.
Surprisingly fun to mess around with.
They do work as rather thick spacers.
Cons:
They're pretty difficult to coax into a cube shape if you're building a small one.
Other:
The ones I received were free of defects; all smooth and uniformly sized.
They tend to form rings when you bring them together if they aren't lined up just right at the ends. You need to build a fairly large cube if you want to overpower this tendency for edges to pop out.
Bottomline:
Would make for fantastic experiments to demo to students if you could keep the kids from stealing them.
