Have you ever bought something that doesn’t necessarily provide any particular function, but is just totally so awesome that you had to have it? Fluux LiquiMetal is exactly that. Although, I wouldn’t call it without a function, LiquiMetal provides you with a momentary distraction, something to gaze into, relaxation when you’re having a long stressful day.
So what is LiquiMetal, exactly?
LiquiMetal is an object that uses Ferrofluid, a liquid which becomes strongly magnetized in the presence of a magnetic field, to create suspended color shifting shapes. Made from glass and anodized aluminum, LiquiMetal can sit on your desktop in one of two positions to provide you with endless entertainment.
Since Ferrofluid relies on magnet to change its shape, the strength of a magnet effects the density / fluidity of it. With your LiquiMetal you’ll get one or two powerful magnet wands that you’ll wave over LiquiMetal to create different shapes. See it in action in this video:
LiquiMetal is available for pre-order on Kickstarter.com. It’s already been over 300% funded (for an obvious reason!), so we can already tell this fun object is quite a hit! You can get yours starting at $55

It’s time to kiss your socks good-bye! No more sock laundry, no more looking for that lost sock and no more wearing socks with holes in them. Sole Socks is a custom insole that replaces your socks. It absorbs moisture and odor, keeps your feet cool and your shoes smelling fresh. Sole Sock is made from three layers:
- breathable grip on the bottom that keeps the insole in place,
- a durable stitch that connects the material together
- and the top material that works on absorbing any sweat, moisture and odor.
It is machine washable, can be used with any type of shoes and they take minimal storage space.
And here’s an added benefit; if you’ve ever tried to pull the sock-less look off, Sole Socks is the perfect solution. Unlike thin socks that still show above the shoe line, Sole Socks give you the full benefits of a traditional sock without showing at all.
Sole Socks is available for pre-order on Kickstarter.com. You can get your Sole Socks for only $8.
