RIZE Ferrofluid Display Mesmerizes with Magnetism

 |  |  |  August 8, 2017


Lava lamps are so 40 years ago. If you want a cool moving display for your desk, you’ll want to check out RIZE, a slick desktop plaything which uses the power of magnetic ferrofluid to create a neat, spinning design.

The RIZE consists of a small glass chamber that sits atop an anodized aluminum base, and is filled with ferrofluid, an unusual liquid with magnetic properties. A structure rises from the center of the glass, and the magnetic fluid sticks to it and spins around, forming a sort of upside-down tornado of metal goo that rises from the base of the glass.

Since the fluid isn’t actually attached to the center, you can pull and push it around using the included magnetic wand, and it’ll just find its way back to the center when you stop messing around.

If there’s anything disappointing about the RIZE is that it’s pretty tiny, measuring in at just 2.5″ x 2.5″ x 4.5″. Still, it’s a pretty sweet desktop toy. You can get your hands on the RIZE ferrofluid display in a variety of fluid colors too, and it’s available now for $135(USD).
