An incredibly addictive desktoy
You can make puzzles, structures, games, patterns, shapes, and even stick stuff to the fridge with BuckyBalls.
Check out the short demo videos below to see a few of the designs and structures you can create with BuckyBalls.
BuckyBalls are mighty strong magnets!
These diminutive magnets are incredibly strong. In fact, we dangled a half-pound wrench by a single 5mm diameter BuckyBall.
So, feel free to use a few of the magnets in your BuckyBalls cube to hold some papers to a filing cabinet or stick a photo on the fridge -- BuckyBalls can handle the load.
Sets include 125 or 216 rare earth magnets
BuckyBall sets are available in two sizes: 125 spheres (aka "Sidekick") or 216 spheres. All BuckyBalls are 5mm in diameter.
You'll be amazed at how a simple string of spherical magnets can provide so many hours of fun. Simply put, the BuckyBalls Magnetic Desktoy is great for fidgeting.
Challenge yourself to discover cool shapes and designs
Using simple patterns, you can create interesting and fun structures with BuckyBalls, from the classic BuckyBalls cube to the more difficult shapes pictured below.
Unlike the Rubik's cube (whose puzzle borders on torture), unlocking the secret behind these structures is challenging, yet attainable.
There are tons of practical uses, too!
In addition to the "play" factor of BuckyBalls, don't forget about their super-usefulness. Each of the magnets is strong enough to hold 8 pieces of paper to a standard filing cabinet (which is probably a little more practical than holding a half-pound wrench).
You can also create a unique business card holder or pen & pencil caddy using BuckyBalls. Of course, there are hundreds more applications, but at some point we must cut the cord and let you uncover more uses on your own.
Convenient carrying case for on-the-go BuckyBallin'
In case you were wondering, "BuckyBallin'" is a verb and if its definition wasn't obvious, it is defined as, "to show off your vast affluence and wealth through your mastery of BuckyBall tricks".
Oh, almost forgot - each complete set of BuckyBalls comes with an orange plastic carrying case.
Available in several styles including black and gold!
BuckyBalls are available in two sizes: 125 and 216 magnets.
The full size sets (216 magnets) are available in the "original" nickel as well as two "executive" editions: black and gold. Black BuckyBalls feature rare black nickel plating, and Gold BuckyBalls are plated with real gold. Trés cool.
The "original" BuckyBalls (both full size and Sidekick) feature nickel plating and appear silver in hue.
