Blob vs Magnetism : Which Magnetism is a blob sensitive to?

 

 

 

Which Magnetism is a blob sensitive to?

An experiment from FJ Deminière.

File available on my drop box folder:

FJD's Blob Folder

 

 

Experiment with 4 test zones

 

What we need:

A « Petri » Box and several magnet and magnetic metals

 

 

Side View of the box cut A-A’

 

 

 Top View

 

The experiment process:

A Blob is put on the central food spot.

One picture every xx hour/minutes during xx days

Where will the Blob eat first?
Where will it stay most?

Where will he never go even if hungry?

Alternative process:

A Blob is put on the central food spot and let it's grow to every food spots in the dark.

When the blob is everywhere, bring magnet under the box.

Where will it stay most?

From where did it leave faster?

One picture every xx hour/minutes during xx days

 

Any other good questions?

What is the magneto-sensitive organ of the Blob?
