Vat19 has to be my favorite online toy company of all time. They carry some of the wackiest items I’ve ever seen and the truth is – I want them all.
This week, I’ve been playing around with a few of their new items and I wanted to share.
Firstly, check out Crazy Aaron’s UV-Reactive Thinking Putty.
This is a moldable putty that takes the shape of whatever container it sits in and changes color when exposed to ultraviolet light. When unexposed, the coloring effect fades away allowing you to write and draw on it over and over again. It really is one of the most magical things I’ve messed with in a long, long time.
Like most putty, you can shape it, rip it and bounce it – but unlike any other putty, this one comes with a UV keychain (battery included).
And then there’s Crazy Aaron’s Liquid Glass Thinking Putty.
When you first open the canister you’ll think it’s empty – but it’s not! It's a tricky putty because because not only does it take the shape of whatever is holding it - it's transparent to boot.
When you pry it out, you’ll find it has the consistency of kneeded gum.
When you wad it up, it becomes foggy and you’ll think that you’ve broken the putty – even though that doesn’t even make sense!
If you let it sit for an hour or two, it’ll flatten out and become transparent again.
Now I’m not sure what creative project I’m going to apply this to yet - but here’s a video of a guy who submerged himself in a tub of 500 lbs. Read the rest
