What is this stuff and
Where does it come from??

During World War II, America's supplies of natural rubber were scarce. American industries searched for rubber substitutes that could be used in place of natural rubber tires, gaskets, and seals. In 1936, Dr. Earl Warrick had begun experimenting with "organosilicon" chemistry - combining silicon (think: sand, glass, computer chips) with carbon (think: you and me, charcoal, and fossil fuels). In 1943, he joined the newly formed Dow Corning Corporation. His research was refocused to help the war effort by developing a synthetic rubber substitute. Although he failed to produce a suitable rubber before the end of the war, one result of his experiments was a Silicone Bouncing Putty (the primary ingredient in Thinking Putty). Although it had no industrial use, he kept some around - it made a nifty toy!

In the fall of 1998, Crazy Aaron (yes he's a real person, we met him earlier this year!) was designing web sites for a living. He was always on the lookout for "the ultimate desk toy." One day he convinced a number of colleagues to pool resources and buy 100lbs of Bouncing Putty from a large chemical supplier.

Watching people react to Putty -- in adult sizes -- was a unique experience. Some people just looked at it, hesitant to touch something that might be "sticky" or "gooey." Other people weren't comfortable playing with a toy in front of co-workers. Eventually, though, everyone's subconscious won over, it was in their hands, and they never wanted to put it down! Squeezing, stretching, and shaping...they didn't even realize it was there! As it melted their stress away, their creative potential was unleashed!
