Thanks Dantalion!

You can make this fluid at home by mixing 1:1 Motoroil with Laserprinter-toner. Watch out for spills, the fluid is quite toxic and not easy to clean up, even on metal or glass surfaces it leaves stains. The fluid has other cool properties, it can climb up vertical surfaces, and when magnetized you can create cool labyrith-alike patterns with it. The credits for the video above go to Sachiko Kodama, the japanese artist/scientist that created it. More of his work can be seen at http://www.interactivearchitecture.org/?p=130

Oh btw, I want a "lavalamp"-thing with this stuff connected to my subwoofer coil :D

Ferro fluid is not new, but this is a great demonstation of some of its propteres. Did they build that device to make the fluid respond to sound? Dan's data has a decent article on his experience with the stuff [[http://www.dansdata.com/magnets.htm]]

This is just too cool! It looks like some alien form from a sci-fi movie. The sound is a little disturbing though.

the us army is planning to use this stuff for future body armors.. strange thought...

Really awesome! And I can make it at home? Can't wait! Toxic? Whatever!

When I was 5 (16 now, btw), they sold stuff like this at the F.A.O. Shwartz in Seattle. They stopped selling it, though. Wonder why... Oh, and I'm not sure if it could do everything that this does. It was more of a black, magnetic, viscous silly putty.

WTF IS THIS SOME ANIMAL OR SOMETHING???

they should use it as a defence Weapon, to trick the eye?

I could be mistaken but i believe automotive engineers are using this stuff inside shocks to have variable viscosity.. in other words the fluid can be thin for a soft ride when cruising and thicken up for sports car stiffness. It was either mercedes or bmw.
