    godammit man. that is so beautiful it almost made me cry. dont really know what is happening exactly yet. will check more later. looks to be not only sound but also some magnetic fields are acting on it.

    thanks for posting

    edit - makes sense, its called magnetic fluid art project...

    Reminds me of something you see when you go to the MOMA.

    ?

    I love it. It's called ferrofluid.

    Here is some more info on this stuff.........

    brainy description:

    Ferrofluid is a stable colloidal suspension of sub-domain magnetic particles in a liquid carrier. The particles, which have an average size of about 100 (10 nm), are coated with a stabilizing dispersing agent (surfactant) which prevents particle agglomeration even when a strong magnetic field gradient is applied to the ferrofluid. The surfactant must be matched to the carrier type and must overcome the attractive van der Waals and magnetic forces between the particles. The colloid and thermal stabilities, crucial to many applications, are greatly influenced by the choice of the surfactant. A typical ferrofluid may contain by volume 5% magnetic solid, 10% surfactant and 85% carrier. In the absence of a magnetic field, the magnetic moments of the particles are randomly distributed and the fluid has no net magnetization. When a magnetic field is applied to a ferrofluid, the magnetic moments of the particles orient along the field lines almost instantly. The magnetization of the ferrofluid responds immediately to the changes in the applied magnetic field and when the applied field is removed, the moments randomise quickly. In a gradient field the whole fluid responds as a homogeneous magnetic liquid which moves to the region of highest flux. This means that ferrofluids can be precisely positioned and controlled by an external magnetic field. The forces holding the magnetic fluid in place are proportional to the gradient of the external field and the magnetization value of the fluid. This means that the retention force of a ferrofluid can be adjusted by changing either the magnetization of the fluid or the magnetic field in the region.

    imagine wearing armor made of this stuff and it basically eats the bullets when your getting shot at. that would be so awesome.

    Do you know the muffinman?

    That stuff's crazy. If it was'nt for the end where they were clapping to make it move, i would have thought it was CG.

    This one actually gave me the creeps:

    We'll ride the spiral to the end, we may just go where no one's been
