  1. All About Magnetic Lashes

    All About Magnetic Lashes
    One of the latest fashion trends that refuses to slow down is having longer, fuller lashes. In everyone’s search for the latest and greatest tricks in the beauty world, magnetic lashes are proving to be a viable option.  Rather than using a traditional adhesive, these lashes are held together by -- you guessed it -- tiny magnets. Essentially, they work...
  2. Mobile Hall Sensor Array for Detecting Ferrous Objects In Floors, Walls, and Pipelines

    Mobile Hall Sensor Array for Detecting Ferrous Objects In Floors, Walls, and Pipelines
    Sometimes, in the construction and use of pipelines, or during the construction/tear-down of buildings, you may need to detect and remove some unknown ferrous object from inside pipes, behind walls, and under flooring. To safely detect the position of an object, you can use a Mobile Hall Sensor Array.  The main benefit of this method is that it’s considered a non-destructive evaluation (NDE), which is exactly what it sounds like… non-destructive. You can determine your next move before making any costly demolition choices that could cause damage to your product or equipment, or even cause serious injury to employees. Continue reading →

    NASA Detects Ancient Magnetism on Surface of Mars
    Learning more about Mars has been one of NASA’s top priorities over the last several years. One of their newest discoveries, thanks to NASA’s InSight Lander, indicates that Mars’ magnetism is much stronger than previously anticipated.  Continue reading →
  4. A Possible Alternative to Traditional Security Metal Detectors

    A Possible Alternative to Traditional Security Metal Detectors
    A low-cost, compact, and low-power metal detector has been created by a team led by Huan Li at the China Institute of Geosciences. In addition to this device is used to identify the unique magnetic fingerprints of small metallic objects, it would allow for significant reductions in the size and the energy requirements of security screening systems.  Continue reading →
  5. A Team From Purdue Has Made the Fastest Spinning Object Ever, In a Vacuum

    A Team From Purdue Has Made the Fastest Spinning Object Ever, In a Vacuum
    A team of researchers from Purdue have measured vacuum friction for the first time in history. By making the fastest spinning object ever with a laser-like 150-nanometer spinning silica ball, this team showed how a tiny ball of silicon dioxide that rotates 300 billion times per second has been able to detect torque, for the first time ever.  Continue reading →
  6. Hustle Bike Labs Working to Create Magnetic REM Bike Pedals

    Hustle Bike Labs Working to Create Magnetic REM Bike Pedals
    A Colorado startup company called Hustle Bike Labs has embarked on a new project to create REM magnetic bicycle pedals. Why? A magnetic pedal can replace traditional clipless pedals to provide easier foot engagement and freedom of movement while still maintaining the same level of safety of typical platforms. We’ve used our latest blog to detail the exciting news for you!    Continue reading →
  7. How Magnets Are Improving Virtual Reality Gaming

    How Magnets Are Improving Virtual Reality Gaming
    With real-life graphics through revolutionary technology, virtual reality has quickly taken over the world of video gaming. The concept of virtual reality is like none other before. It actually allows you to experience your favorite video game in first-person as if you’re the main character. Whether it’s sports games – like tennis or baseball – or story-mode war games, virtual reality lets you put your skills to the test. The technology is relatively new, so improvements are still in the works to make virtual reality gaming increasingly realistic and efficient. And magnets are playing a key role in them.  Continue reading →
  8. Can You Use Magnets for Bungee Jumping? Not So Fast

    Can You Use Magnets for Bungee Jumping?  Not So Fast
    For thrill seekers, bungee jumping is an exhilarating experience like none other. Just imagine the feeling of free-falling from a dangerously high cliff and stopping just before you hit the ground from an elastic cord that slingshots you back up into the air. It’s certainly not for everyone, but – like skydiving out of planes – some people love it.  Continue reading →
  9. Magnetism in Space

    Magnetism in Space
    We are constantly learning about new findings of magnetism in space. From space migrations and magnetic levitation to helping astronauts reach faraway planets, magnetism plays a key role in our studies of the galaxy beyond Earth’s atmosphere. Read more about what magnetic knowledge we gained in 2019 relating to space. Continue reading →
  10. Dr. Sheldon Breiner & His Magnetic Exploration Techniques

    Dr. Sheldon Breiner & His Magnetic Exploration Techniques
    In October 2019, world-renowned geophysicist  Dr. Sheldon Breiner passed away at the age of 82. Breiner was a magnetic pioneer. In the 1960s, he devised a method to use magnetism to detect  sunken submarines and other underwater objects by observing the way they affected the magnetic fields around them. His company, Geometrics, developed magnetometers that measured magnetic fields, and his expertise helped archaeological research expeditions around the world.  Continue reading →
