Kyle Haines' magnetic ferrofluid lamp is an alluring pairing of science and design that provides both a tactile and visual experience. The lamp is made up of a vertically stretched glass tube that has 15 ml of ferrofluid inside.

The 'Inspiration' lamp provides a dynamic visual display that can be manipulated by the owner. With magnets provided, the owner can play with the physics-bending medium by sliding the magnets down either side -- attracting the particles and forcing them to follow their movements.

When turned on, the motion lamp will automatically move the liquid up and down in blobs, like a modern-day lava lamp. Adding to his array of magnetic ferrofluid displays, this lamp joins designs like a small plastic pendant and glass cylinders that house blue or gold ferrofluid.
