Magnetic Putty Is Creepy

Magnetic putty is a stretchable, moldable putty that contains particles whose magnetic poles line up in the presence of a magnetic metal.

Because it is malleable, it will fully encompass any metal object placed near it. Really. It’s pretty creepy.

It’s available for purchase at Crazy Aaron’s Putty World.

Here’s a video from Joey Shanks, sped up slightly:
