"'Neodya II' is a new planet, dominated by a strong and scattered magnetic presence. The mutable surface changes with a whim; the reconfigurable landscape is yours to shape. This 5-foot diameter globe is studded with hidden magnets and covered with metallic bits and pieces. By spinning it, rearranging it, and playing with it, participants can cooperatively indulge their creative impulses and make intricate worlds."
