Fun with magnets

The NeoCube is composed of 216 individual high-energy rare-earth magnets in the shape of small pellets. This allows the creation of a large variety of shapes and patterns.

Wouldn't this be fun to play with?

That thing makes me very wiggly. Someone should make a dress out of it for the next Oscars or something. Although I imagine it would weigh about 500 lbs.

A dress....... That's a great idea! Just imagine - an outfit made out of those magnets would be able to follow the curves of your body probably better and with more strength than ordinary fabric.

Interesting [putting finger on face in a pensive gesture].....
