Karim Zaouai's Ferrowatch

Welcome to Back To The Future.

This mouthwatering timepiece by Karim Zaouai takes the relationship of science and art to the next step. Ferroliquid, a magnetically sensitive chemical, is sealed between the glass face and the mechanism of magnets, keeping the liquid suspended in time (what a pun, this pun). The charges from the inner magnets manipulate the liquid.

Hit the jump to see it in action.
