Nobel Illuminations

A playful combination of light, movement, and technology, this innovative motion lamp makes glowing lava a thing of the past. Scientist Kyle Haines began experimenting with the idea of "liquid magnets" during his time as a student at Penn State University. His curiosity led him to the discovery of ferrofluids- a special type of liquid that becomes magnetized in the presence of magnetic fields. After 10,000 prototypes and months of innovation, Haines was finally able to capture this amazing substance inside a stylish motion lamp.

To use, simply turn on the incandescent bulb at the base to set the magnetized liquid in motion, then run the included rare earth magnets down the sides of the lamp to make the liquid "spike" and dance. No longer a novelty substance found in science labs, this instant conversation starter proves that sometimes the 10,000th time's a charm. Assembled in Pennsylvania with components from China and New Hampshire.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

In the course of designing ferrofluid products Kyle has created 10,000+ unsatisfactory prototypes. After many failed experiments he was close to giving up. Kyle had exhausted everything that he thought should work. But before he threw in the towel, Kyle decided to test things that he thought shouldn't work. This is where Kyle had his first good results. Testing what shouldn't work has been the greatest learning experience of his life.

Comments about UncommonGoods Magnetic Motion Lamp:

This lamp is really neat. It's a high quality product and it matches the description here perfectly. It was slightly smaller than I was expecting, but I was not disappointed. We've enjoyed playing around with the magnetic motion using the provided magnets.

Comments about UncommonGoods Magnetic Motion Lamp:

The high rating is for the best reasons. Everything went wrong. I gave a bad address and my gift was misdelivered before we could stop it. They no longer had that item in stock. I had to pick a new gift and use over night delivery to save Christmas. Uncommon Goods quickly got my order out on time. Additionally my I was refunded money for shipping charges and the original purchase promptly. Two quick phone calls - virtually no hold time and polite and helpful salespersons to help me save my aunt's Christmas gift delivery. Thank you
