A lot of people have been curious about what the NanoDots actually are. We have to admit that we're not exactly sure ourselves, but we find them fascinating.
These desktop toys are actually magnetic constructors that allow you to perform science experiments at will. Gyroscopic magnets allow you to explore atomic interactions at a human scale, from tessellation of shapes to Euclidean tiling. We love the mechanical movement and how fun they are to interact with, whether or not you're trying to learn anything.
