Magnetic Sand Timer
A fun twist on the classic sand timer!
- Replacing sand with metal and magnets
- Iron interacts with the magnetic force
- Creating interesting time structures!
Watching time pass you by doesn't have to be a monotonous task.
Whilst your normal hour glass lets the grains of sand flow and rest at the bottom, your Magnetic Sand Timer creates quite a different picture and can create a really neat desk toy for visitors to marvel at.
With the Magnetic Sand Timer, the filings are magnetised by the base and come together to form uniquely chaotic shapes as they fall through the timer with each turn of the glass!
Without the base, your Sand Timer will work just like a normal hourglass, but put it on the magnetic base to create a different magnetic structures each time!
Times for 30 seconds.
Dimensions: 13cm tall x 8cm wide (including base).

Stocking FillerBy: Andrew on 2 January 2018Service from Cool Things is awesome. The Magnetic Sand Timer is 30 seconds. The picture is what you get. It is fun to play with for a couple of minutes, more fun for "desk/office visitors". The glass feels strong enough for the job but it is not for young kids. The glass is real glass. The magnet is so strong the timer will not tip over once the iron has flowed through to the bottom. There is nothing wrong with it but it is not amazing either.
magic sand timerBy: ANNETTE on 20 November 2017The item was as described and delivery was fast and efficient. I thought the postage could have been a bit more reasonable, but all in all was satisfied with the service.
