Magnet is one of nature’s many magical creations that we have grown to depend on in our daily lives. Whether it’s used as fridge magnets or as electricity generators, we spend most of our life reaping the benefits of magnets. This almost magical like material never fails to awe us with its limitless uses and supply. I’m pretty sure that playing with magnets at times can be just as fun as your Nintendo Wii or even your PlayStation3. What better way to play with it but with one of the many creations of Bucky Fuller, the Buckycubes.
The American scientist cum inventor, Bucky Fuller first came out with the spherical version of the Buckycubes called the Buckyballs. Unfortunately there were only a few things that you could do or build with the spheres but with the new Buckycubes, those limits are no longer in sight. Buckycubes is a desk toy that is made up of 125 unique earth magnets that are strong and durable.
The Buckycubes have no specific purpose and only offer you pure fun of mixing them up and creating buildings and other designs. You can twist, turn, bend, and stack these cubes as much as you see fit. These remarkable magnets can be purchased at a price of $25.00 and can be found at the nearest toy store or science store. These silver cubes can be quite hazardous due their strength and size so it is advisable to keep children away unless there’s an adult present to guide them.
There is always a big debate going on as to whether the Xbox or the Playstation 3 is the better console to play First-Person Shooter (FPS) games on. Personally, I am an Xbox fan but some of my friends have Playstations so I have played on both and cannot decide which is better. One thing is for sure, the Call of Duty games are a must have.
