Hold your breath; we're going to explain what exactly is a ferrofluid clock. It's no rocket science, although the concept combined science with art.
We know we said it's no rocket science, but the ferrofluid clock has magnetic liquid arms made from prototype rocket fuel. It was initially created by no other than NASA back in the '60s.
To understand how this clock works, you need to know first that ferrofluid could only be pulled into the rocket engines by using magnets in zero gravity.
Hold on to that thought as you read further along.
The ferrofluid clock works like your typical clock. The long arm tells the hours, and a small dot shows the minutes. There is also a second hand.
Now, the ferrofluid clock is designed far from your typical clocks in that the long arm and the second hand are made with ferrofluid.
You can see the long arm and second hand interact with each other. The clock's hands are like two people that would stop to do a high-five.
The most exciting part is that you can also interact with the hands using a magnet.
If you need something to keep your juice flowing at the office, or need something to do with your hand to avoid boredom, you can play with the ferrofluid clock.
It's like doodling at the face of the clock. Except that, you don't use a pen, but a magnet, to shape the ferrofluid.
This has been possible because of the flat pannel ferrofluid display attached to the face of the clock. The makers of this product claim the ferrofluid panel is the first of it's kind around the world.
The flat ferrofluid display can be removed from the clock to make for a doodling pad, so to speak. You can play with the ferrofluid with the magnet that comes with the product.
The whole of the ferrofluid clock, by the way, is handcrafted out of solid oak and aluminum. It needs a single AA battery which could last a year before replacement.
The clock will be a beautiful addition to your office or home with its brushed aluminum front panel finished. You can choose if you like a light or dark wood finish.
The thing is, you can not order the ferrofluid clock, at least for the meantime.
What you can do is back the project through its Kickstarter campaign and be one of the early birds to have a special discount when the project pushed through.
