Believe it or not, the functionality of magnets reaches far beyond just adorning your fridge. We use magnets everyday and so often that we may not even realize that we are using them. Honestly, our lives would be very different without magnetism. For instance, magnets are used in head phones, computers, cars, recycling centers, blenders, handbags and much more. Even now, inventors, scientists and researchers are looking towards magnetism for use in several medical and technological innovations such as the treatment of cancer and depression.

Often, when customers contact us with magnet or other product questions, we also get to hear about the creative and exciting projects that they are working on. But, we’d also like to see their projects and end results. How have you used magnets?
