Our Story

Here's what we could tell you...

We could tell you that this really is alien bio-cybernetic technology smuggled out of Area 51. We could tell you that these are real alien skulls with sentient smart fluid inside. That the green ferrofluid has a mind of it's own and the glowing fluid surrounding it is biologically tuned to the ferrofluid for special preservative properties. We could claim that the special fluids exhibit quantum entanglement and may have the ability to communicate information from across space and time.

But, we are NOT saying any of this. We don't want to be taken away by men in black suites...

The Official Story  

Ferrofluid was invented by NASA in the 1960's as experimental rocket fuel. It's a magnetic liquid comprised of iron oxide nanoparticles. We have a secret proprietary blend that preserves the ferrofluid in the bottle as well as another proprietary blend that gives the ferrofluid a green color. The 'glowing' effect of the clear fluid is from a fluorescent dye.  

Move along. Nothing else to see here.

 

 

 Ferrofluid eventually found beneficial uses outside of rocket fuel when two enterprising engineers liscenced the intellectual property. At the time they didn't know what it could be used for exactly, but they were determined to find something this interesting material could make better. Amazingly, it turned into a $100M industry from the new innovations that developed. This is the interesting story of how Ferrotec was founded.

It's a lava lamp filled with rocket fuel!

Actually it's filled with educational grade ferrofluid, but you get the point.

This is why we want to put our Ferrofluid Lava Lamp Technology into a lamp shaped like a rocket. It's potential as a rocket fuel was the original inspiration that lead to it's development.

 

Here's what Ferrotec Thinks:

Of course, making the 'lava' in your lava lamp respond to magnetic fields breaths new life into the lava lamp concept. It goes from a classical nostalgic psychedelic centerpiece to a way far out interactive trippy masterpiece.  

But, it's not all mind bending time distortions and wavy landscapes for us at Inspired Designs LLC. We actually understand the science behind how all this works and even have a patent for the technology.

 My Story  

Hi, I'm Kyle. I've been making ferrofluid displays for 6 years. I started doing it full time 3 years ago. I hold a patent related to this technology and have raised funds for ferrofluid products on kickstarter 2X in the past.

I had great success with my previous kickstarter project where I unveiled the first ever ferrofluid lava lamp that I called 'The Inspiration'.

The Inspiration was a hit and over 250 kickstarter backers pledged for it, helping the campaign raise over $88,000 (back then it cost $150 because it was so hard to produce). Overall, it was a great success. I've been selling ferrofluid products ever since.

New and Improved

'The Rocket'  Magnetic Ferrofluid Lava Lamp differs from the first lamp we made. The obvious difference is the new rocket shape. 

The shape also makes the lamp 33% larger than the first version so you get more fluids. It's also half the cost of the first version when we first introduced it.

The new version also has an improved formula that even closer matches the iconic lava lamp. 

It's basically bigger better and more affordable than the first version.

The new rocket lamp (on the left) also has an improved formula.

Make 100  

I took Kickstarter's Make 100 Challenge as an opportunity to make some artistic displays that I normally wouldn't pursue. The alien head bottles are very cool, however, high quality versions are not easy or cheap to source. 

I will only be making a maximum 100 of the Glowing Alien Head (50 mL) and the Large Glowing Alien Head (750 mL) displays. It's also not likely I will offer any of the other glowing rewards after this project ends. Call it a kickstarter exclusive.
