Magnet Mania

Watch this series of slow-motion videos in which 90 small magnets are laid out in a matrix. Then another magnet is dropped on top, which upsets the matrix and causes the magnets to realign, assembling themselves into, um, whatever it is that magnets naturally assemble into.

I know my description is confusing; but take my word, it's pretty cool. Link -via Unique Daily

from the3d artist POV,
this is non-simulatable stuff...
allthough I might never have to use this, tagged it as reference footage.

How I love dynamics...
I would love to see 100k+ fps footage of that first fraction of a second
the way that grid falls apart intrigues me immensly...

interesting, but they need to learn how to edit a video. i kept waiting for something to happen after the first 5 seconds. just sits there.

Its sort of aggravating to watch those.. Especially if your interested in such a thing. The videos all seem to focus on what shape the magnets realigned to and not actually the process of which this happens. If your going to slow down something why do it at the end of it when Nothing is happening?
