I was in liquidation world today and saw this. My first thought (being a hsm type) is that it would act like a magnet, attracting iron, steel, etc. Then I thought maybe it's just something that a magnet would stick to. For 6 bucks I could paint some of the concrete walls in the shop and have somewhere to put all those little magnets I have. :)

Anybody ever use this stuff?

I've not used it myself, but a friend of mine painted his daughters bedroom walls with the stuff. When it was done you could stick things similar to "refrigerator" type magnets to it as decorations, or to stick photos, posters and such to the walls with them. Kind of weird. I don't think you could hang anything too heavy from it, but it was pretty cool for a young teen girl.

Anti-matter containment vessels use something like this.

It has to be electrostaticly applied in zero gravity however.

Hmm, here I go again- I wonder what other possible uses there are for it besides sticking things to it with magnets-
