Felt Magnetic Katamari Playset
…and thus continues the eternal question. Fucking magnets, how do they work?!
OOOOOOH! that made my day right there. i think everyone in the office is wondering why the weird guy is laughing really loud right about now.
The soundtrack on this clip is pure punk-rock win.
Music was the best part.
IronEdithKidd, keep an eye on BensBargains.net. They occasionally have a set that would be perfect for this. A couple hundred tiny magnetic balls for something like $30.
This is fantastic!!! My husband was just asking me what I want for X-mas (he’s a bit late with the shopping, this year, but we aren’t big into the X-mas), and I was having trouble thinking of much.
Now, instead of waiting up for santa claus, I’m going to write a note to the king of all cosmos, asking him to entrust me with a katamari, because I’m all about some rolling.
This one is also pretty awesome, though you have to make it yourself: http://amysbabies.wordpress.com/magnetic-katamari-pattern/
I routinely roll everything up on my desk.
Sweet! Now, where can I get a stack of rare-earth magnets on the cheap?
Thanks, now that song is going to be in my head for the next month. I actually got a hand me down ps2 just for this game. Time to fire it up again, I guess.
Any other katamari superfans out there might like to know that Panic (makers of fine Mac software like Transmit and Coda) also for some reason make a few awesome Katamari t-shirts. http://panic.com/goods/#katamari
