This is one of those things that technically I understand how it works, but it's so far away from how I expect magnets to work it might as well be magic.

Imagine anything with a spring or latch being replaced by magnets.

I wonder if these are similar to the sheets of magnet paper that can be fed through (SOME) printers. I remember making my own graphics on printed magnets with an old Kodak inkjet I had. Haven't seen those magnet sheets in a while though.

I'm pretty sure those are just fridge magnets, not actual printed magnetic fields.

That is really fucking cool. When can I get a printer that can do that. So many possibilities


First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me-- and there was no one left to speak for me.

I'm not sure when something like that will be available, I'm just excited to get the products.

I wonder if you could make a maglev track using them and not have to have superconductors.

Sounds like spleen is planning a multi-room model railroad...

 

Or already has one.
