Happiness Machine

Applause and awe-struck, gob-smacked smiles go to Barcelona based motion-graphics and visual effects studio Physalia, who created quite possibly the happiest entry in this year’s “Happy”-themed F5 Re:Play Film FestivalInductance. One giant magnet and hundreds of colourful capacitor-filled plastic balls later, and you can’t help but smile.

But is this superb creation from what is first and foremost a special effects studio—specialists in making the imaginary fly through the air—actually real? It’s no secret that happiness in life can be elusive, but it’s even harder to find through reasoning…

    That was a really cool video. It reminds me of a lava lamp, but much bigger! 🙂

    Much bigger, and with probably a whole lot less passive smoking in the room, judging by the people I used to know who had lava lamps…

    Clearly, Magnus the magnet magnate is also preparing something on similar principles on the other side of the world!I wouldn’t be surprised if he is the 6th degree of separation.

    Very nice video, it relaxed me. Also, it reminds me too of a lava lamp. Those guys are really professionals, they know how to make a great video.
