Density cubes

Does anybody else collect density cubes? Big Smile

I think they are cool.
I got a few from Aliexpress, but the weight does not really match the official weight.
For example 1 cm3 of Titanium should weigh 4.507 grams, but I measured 4.60g with my digital scale, which I also got from Aliexpress lol

I don’t, but those are very cool. I like the feel of chunks of metal in hand.

My Future's So Bright...well, my flashlights are anyways.

Uranium is a bit hard to get I bet

Oh you think darkness is your ally
You merely adopted the dark, I was born in it ,moulded by it
I didn’t see the light until I was allready a man, by then it was nothing to me but blinding
The shadows belong to me

Fw1a pro might help in the situation !

I’ve bought a bunch of things over time on Kickstarters… oops.

Cubes at the front are Forge Solid (Tungsten + Magnesium-Lithium), in the middle are Spheroids (Cu + Ti), back left are spheres (Cu + Ti), and back right are element cubes (no Tungsten though).

Terrible 3D printed one in the middle behind the spheroids though. Blah.

I find the concept interesting, but the prices of even the cheapest cubes are just crazy.
