Saturday 3 May 2008This is 15 years old. Be careful.

The NeoCube is an astonishing toy made of 216 high-strength magnetic ball bearings. The movie shows an array of surprising transformations:

I’m mesmerized by the shifts from one form to another, especially when it pops from a flat net to a Platonic solid all by itself.

Seems like a fun toy to have around, except for the part where those little ball bearings could zap your disks or credit cards if they get too close...


I think I need to add that to my toy collection for my desk at work, that is completely awesome!
The "Neo Cube" blew my mind when I saw it so I went to the website and it costs quite amount of money.....well ok at least 50$ plus it takes 8 weeks to deliver to you I could wait that long but I need something else to pass my time
Why don't they fall into a cubic close packing arrangement?
The polarity is probably set so they arrange in a specific linear pattern.
I saw it was sold on ebay. try searching "neocube"
its pretty amazing thin - i want to buy one.
It is awsome, there's a guy who sells the magnets from Poland on ebay (they're down to about $35 now plus s/h, evenly priced w/ the real neocube), it's not brand name, but the magnets are just as high quality and it doesn't take months to get, I got mine to the US east coast in less than a week. It's especially fun if you like experimenting to see what type of mathmatical models and shapes you can create from units of a certain shape. Each sphere has N/S polarity like any other magnet, so you can take a random clump and pull out a long string.
The neocube is awesome. I bought mine on ebay. It has a 24kt Gold plating. Addictive toy.
I found a website ( where you can the the 216 for $32 including shiping. And they even sell up to a 10 by 10 by 10 cube!
I got my cubes from it was only $28 per cube and a flat $3.00 shipping, and I got mine in three days. They need a warning they are so addictive! I can't put mine down.

Magnetic Spheres are high power neodymium magnets manufactured in a perfect sphere shape.
They are magnetised straight across their diameters which means that they attract each other and can be formed into intricate patterns and mindblowing 3 dimensional objects.
In their simplest form you can make single file chains which can be joined to make bracelets and necklaces that stay securely held together ONLY by the power of magnetism, the chain of beads can be split at any point and instantly rejoined.

They can also be used individually to hold papers on steel notice boards without rolling down the board.

They are exciting, fascinating and will amaze everyone that you show them to!
