Ferrofluid Magnetoscope

Abstract:
The Ferrofluid Magnetoscope allows users to position powerful magnets to levitate a magnetic liquid. People discover they must cooperate through coordinated movements of the top and bottom hand wheels to explore the limits of their dynamic liquid sculpture. This initiates a natural sense of community through play.
