Why settle for the average desk toy when you could get your hands on Nanodots?

Nanodots are magnetic spheres precision-milled from sintered neodynium-iron-boron. And for all our non-scientists out there, that means these awesome magnets are engineered to be malleable without breaking apart easily. They’re actually designed to model atomic interactions at a human scale, in fact.


They’re made out of the strongest permanent magnets known to man and can be used to build complex structures. Side note: if you’re in love with your magnificent creation, Nanodots last more than 20,000 years. For real.

Not only are the coatings antibacterial and washable, they can withstand impact and corrosion. Get the Nanodots 216 Set for $34.99 from the Daily Dot store, reduced from $39.99.
