How About A Cube Of Tungsten, For Your Entertainment?

How About A Cube Of Tungsten, For Your Entertainment?

forge-solid

This is really cool. You can apparently purchase a solid block of 95% pure tungsten. Why would you want that?

– It’s 70% denser than lead
– Denser than Uranium
– Nearly impossible to melt
4x harder than Titanium
19x denser than water

This means you can proudly display the cube on your desk and when someone passes by and asks you what the heck it is, you can just tell them to pick it up and watch them be amazed by how improbably heavy it is. It doesn’t do anything, really, other than make you aware of how amazing some the universes’ elements is. And look cool on display. A 1″ cube will set you back a $69 pledge. But the real fun begins if you’re willing to drop $199 to get the KILO, which is a 1.5″ (3.8cm) cube that weighs exactly one kilogram. Shipping will happen in April, since this is a fully funded Kickstarter project; as of this writing it’s exceeded its goals by $150,000!
