Magnetic Marvel

Re-imagining the traditional uses for magnets

Implications - Offbeat and innovative applications of magnetics are appearing in design, with everything from magnetic apparel to home decor. While some magnetized creations offer a twist on the typical function of such products, other magnetized items provide an extra level of convenience and user-friendliness--a completely fuss-free magnetized neck tie, for example--which is perfect for the stressed and busy consumer who is increasingly seeking convenience in everyday objects.
