Ferrofluid Speaker Music Mate
Ferrofluid Speaker helps visualize music using magnetic fluid...
Ferrofluid Speaker Music Mate is a very cool device for music visualization. Although this device does not play music by itself, it has a built-in microphone, making it a music partner for other speakers. When the sound waves hit the microphone built into the device, they are converted into a magnetic force. As the ferrofluid responds to magnetic forces, it begins to dance to the rhythm of the music inside the transparent liquid. It is a pretty cool sight how the ferrofluid creates an infinite number of shapes to the rhythm of the music as if it were alive.
A ferrofluid is a fluid composed of ferromagnetic particles, which are usually small iron particles. It is a unique substance that behaves on the one hand like a magnetic solid and on the other like a liquid. It was invented in the early 1960s by NASA scientist Stephen Papell, whose goal was to pump rocket fuel using magnetic fields.
