Designer Matt Robinson created an interactive desktop sculpture that is filled with ferromagnetic fluid. Although lava lamps are not as popular as they once were, there are many who still appreciate the beauty of the mesmerizing light fixtures.

Robinson's futuristic lava lamp is called the 'Ferroflow' and is filled with a suspended liquid that moves in response to strong electromagnetic currents. The liquid itself is ferromagnetic fluid, which is a magnetic substance invented by NASA. When you touch the device, the liquid will begin bubbling. If you wish to adjust or manipulate the liquid, simply use the dial attached to the front of the device.

The interactive desktop sculpture functions as a high-tech version of the traditional lava lamp.
