Magnets can do some wild stuff, man. They can shrink a quarter down to half its size, make soda cans explode, and straight up demolish an apple. Yes, magnets have been made to do fun and “out there” things, but even in their purest form, when opposite forces are attracted to each other, magnets are still pretty darn neat. Case in point: This YouTube video from Magnetic Games shows magnets being pulled by each other and nothing more, and it’s still a bunch of fun to watch (via Boing Boing).
Is this one of the most interesting magnet videos you’ve ever seen? If not, what other ones top it? Let us know what clips you’re attracted to down in the comments!
