Strange Attractor – Super Magnetic 4 inch tin


Strange attractor is the name of a mathematical equation that is commonly part of chaos theory. This equation creates a fractal—a never ending, non-repeating pattern within a dynamic system.
Basically, a strange attractor has a mind of its own and creates beautiful patterns in design, art, and nature.
Strange Attractor Thinking Putty has a mind of its own as well.

Are bigger magnets better?
The stronger the magnet, the more powerful an effect you’ll feel from Strange Attractor. The magnets we sell are the same magnets shown in our new video. They are very strong and, in our opinion, represent a nice balance between strength and safety.
However, if you feel like you can mind your fingers and your tender flesh, you can purchase even stronger magnets on your own. Be careful! Keep in mind that stronger third party magnets are NOT for children and are NOT toys.
