    Speaking of ferrofluid, I saw an ad recently for magnetic nail polish, “Le Magnetique.” Just search that and it should pop right up. Blew me away… Just think, the Photoshop team could come up with all sorts of designs for nails.

    When I was in school, a staff scientist was working on using ferrofluids as lubricating media in high speed rotating parts, sort of as a gasket with variable friction based on the H/B fields.
    I’d never seen them presented this way – very cool! It makes me wonder if there could be a way to use the same techniques as a rapid prototyping tool, or a cheap, passive sensor for investigating magnetic fields near sensitive equipment, like electron microscopes.
