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.
