Default Zen Magnets

Do any of you use zenmagnets? (or anything simaler, buckyballs, neocubes)

You can buy them here:http://zenmagnets.com/

If you do, you should post some of your creations here.

I post videos here: http://www.youtube.com/user/trwMagnets?feature=mhum

And I post photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thomaswilder/

The standard size set goes for $25, but the cool thing about zenmagnets is that you can go to their flickr group and submit pictures of your zen magnet creations and if you get 3 pictures excepted they will send you a code for a free set. I've only bought 1 set, and yet I have 4 now because of this system, that's what makes them so awesome.

Also, you can make a video of your zen magnets (it can be anything, tutorials, creations, reviews, w/e) and depending on how many views it get's you can get free sets off of that too. Here is the view chart (3 zen credits= a free set) http://www.flickr.com/photos/41192040@N06/5071086204/

I use this. It's F***ING BEAST!
Despite the fact that the ball is completely un-magic, and fake...it's still cool. It looks a lot better than, say...a softball.

Hey, I do some contact juggling myself. But I have yet to get a real stage ball like fushigi without any tellmarks.

Made a few more shapes recently, it would be awesome if a few of you would subscribe. I'm trying to become a youtube partner and now that they removed the applications it's a lot harder. So I'm trying to work really hard.
