What is a NeoCube?
A Neocube is not really a cube but an array of small magnetic balls called Neodymium magnets. These little balls can be arranged into almost any shape or structure, including a cube.
As you can see from the picture, they can be used to create very inticate designs including bracelets, necklaces, and even puzzles.
They were first created in Pittsburgh in 2008 by Chris Reda and have quickly grown to be a fun and sophisticated toy around the world. Everyone in their lifetime has played with magnets before and they never fail to fascinate. Neodymium magnets are much, much stronger than regular magnets and so, they offer an even funner experience!
This was the first intro video to the Neocube that I watched and I was already very impressed.
