Nanodots GYROs

Magnet Montreal now offers these fun gadgets! Nanodots GYROs are dipole magnets (i.e. with two magnetic poles) with powerful magnetic fields. Each GYRO can be used to recreate the interaction of minuscule self-aligning magnets at a human scale. It shows this with an internal mechanism that moves regardless of outside physical influences. A transparent case allows you to look insideas the Neodymium magnets pivot and self-orient in all directions. Nanodots GYROs can be used as a compass, spherical gears, frictionless magnetic wheels... that plus many other things to discover. For tactile exploration, experimentation, or intriguing tabletop art, Nanodots GYROs are a wonderful mix of motion and magnetism. They are a great activity for hobby enthusiasts, an educational aid in an academic setting, and a fantastic scientific research tool. 

Shapes can be created using multiple sets of GYROs and Magnet Proxies. There are four basic shapes used in all magnetic constructors: rings, squares, triangles and polygons. Making these basic shapes of various sizes and mixing them together will have a shape pattern starting to appear. For more stable shapes, use a non-slippery surface.
