MagZen Deluxe Magnetic Zen Garden

First up on the list is the deluxe magnetic Zen garden from Magzen. What makes this¬†Zen garden so unique is that it is filled with magnetic iron. Its main purpose is to allow the user to relieve some stress and relax. In turn, this would allow the user’s attention level to increase exponentially and creativity to soar. We were first introduced to this concept when we saw many of such Zen gardens while touring in Japan. However, we did not, regrettably, get any of the Zen garden due to baggage limitations. After seeing a lovelorn wifey who ponders about the Zen garden from time to time, I did a search on Amazon and found out that it’s sold right here in the US!

Measuring 8.5″ x 8.5″ x 2″ (L x B x H), the fun magnetic Zen garden box is small and compact; perfect to place it on your work desk. The MagZen Deluxe Magnetic Zen Garden includes two packs of natural magnetic sand, actual mini metal and wooden garden tools¬†(just so cute!!), miniature wooden vase, hematite magnet rocks and… an AMETHYST CRYSTAL – perfect for energy healing. This Zen garden causes no mess and does not require¬†any maintenance; which makes it the perfect sand box for the inner child in you to relieve some stress from work. This Zen garden is an extremely effective form of meditation as when you focus on your next magnetic creation, you’ll¬†slowly forget all about your troubles and worries. Taking up minimal space, you can also easily change the design or setting of your Zen garden to reflect your current mood and to allow it to blend in with your workstation. There’s no better thing to buy for the artsy Zen person than this so what are you waiting for? Get it from here and surprise your loved one today!

Just to sidetrack – We did some research on the history of Zen gardens found that Zen gardens originated in medieval Japan. The Japanese call them¬†karesansui, which loosely translate to “dry mountain water”. The creation of Zen garden all boils down to Japanese devotion to propriety; as nothing is more aesthetically pleasing than to create ripples and waterfalls that always stay as beautiful as it is. Don’t you think that it is indeed a very interesting concept?

The magnet at the base of the hourglass causes the magnetic sand to magnetize as it falls, creating a temporary unique black “crystal” sculptures. To create a variety of formations, simply twist and turn the timer – Yes, it is¬†that¬†easy!

ScienceGeek Magnetic Levitator Floating Classic Anti-Gravity Toy

Next up is the ScienceGeek Magnetic Levitator Floating Classic Anti-Gravity Toy on Amazon. Nothing says futuristic and cool as well as having a piece of metal floating on your desk.

Looks like its rocket science? Well, the mechanism behind this piece of ingenuity work is surprisingly very straightforward and can be explained easily – a piece of magnet is placed inside the base which constantly repels the other piece of magnet in the barbell, allowing the mini barbell to be kept afloat. The empty space between the mini barbell and base gives you the leeway to spin the mini barbell. As the mini barbell rotates (for quite awhile), it is very relaxing to watch and to ponder and reflect on your life.

The downside of the magnetic levitator floating anti-gravity toy is that you’d need to keep it out of reach from children as the toy may not be able to withstand the constant abuse from a curious child. That being said, it will make a wacky entrance at your office desk and is perfect as an exquisite table decoration. Also, there’s no need to worry about maintenance as it does not require any batteries for it to work. Get it from Amazon now.
