      What happens when you hit Thinking Putty with a hammer? IT SHATTERS! Doesn't seem to make any sense does it? You play with Thinking Putty BECAUSE it stretches and melts and acts like a real liquid solid. So how does that work?
      The Answer
      Thinking Putty is a dilatant compound, (which means it becomes solid under the influence of pressure), and it displays four different properties on four different time scales:
      • At very long timescales, it behaves like a liquid spreading out onto a flat surface.
      • At moderate timescales, Thinking Putty stretches like a plastic solid.
      • At short timescales, it bounces like an elastic solid.
      • At very short timescales (the impact of a high-speed projectile), Thinking Putty simply shatters.
