I can’t help but laugh when I watch these CGI silly putty creatures fall down and smack the ground and then have their buddy fall down on top of them and smack them and have another buddy fall down on both of them and smack them and then have them all sort of melt together in some sort of viscous congealed gooey mess.
Think Silly Putty is just fun and games? Not always! Just watch this magnetic putty completely devour a rare-earth magnet. It's not as instantaneous as this time-lapse video makes it seem but it still ends up engulfing the entire magnet.
This automagically morphing blob of Silly Putty is based in science, silly, not witchcraft.
Shall we open with an ironic reference to Terminator 2? Best not. That's the easy option, especially when dealing with lumps of metallic ooze that seem able to alter their shape in response to their surroundings.
