Kickstarter: Ferrofluid Magician

Ferrofluid Magician is a passion project that founder of Mr. Sci science factory Kevin Lin. And now they've gone to Kickstarter to attempt to raise funds to produce this educational toy. Ferrofluid is a magnetic liquid that becomes strongly magnetized in the presence of a magnetic field. They've placed a magnet in the top of the magician's hat (and a little pigeon is hidden underneath it).

You can pick one up beginning at the $29.00 funding level. Of course, they have several other funding levels, where you can pick up a number of various rewards.

This project will be funded on Wednesday, November 9th 2016 at 7:24AM EDT.

Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.




The Predatug-O-War micro run is here. It's inspired by the classic monster from the Predator movies and painted meticulously by Obsessed Panda, right down the the glowing yellow eyes and neon green speckles of blood. Only a handful have been created for this run and each one is slightly different from the others. The figure was produced in soft vinyl by Unbox Industries and originally designed/sculpted by Zectron.

These will go up for grabs on Tuesday October 18th 2016 at 9AM PST via the Obsessed Panda Webshop for $55.00 each.
