Ferrite is now open for backing! Check it out on Kickstarter.
I can’t think of anyone who isn’t fascinated by magnets. They exist in a realm outside our comprehension; an invisible yet tangible force, showing up only in the effect they have on the surrounding world. However, there is a way to visualize the forms and the waves that magnets create, and that is through ferrofluid.
Ferrofluid is a liquid suspension of ferromagnetic particles. It reacts and conforms to magnetic waves, while also exhibiting properties of a fluid. Ferrofluid has been used extensively in hardware, and in art. But until now, there has been few consumer options available. That’s where Ferrite comes in. And with funding, it can become a reality.
Below is a gallery of some other images and renderings, including details and other actions shots of the prototype. We are currently shooting and editing video for a full demonstration.
