Recently Nanoleaf sent out a questioner about paying for magnetic mounting. I would be very interested in this type of mounting along with a magnetic paint for the walls. I intend to get some paint and painting my wall in order to experiment with this option I will post my results in the by next week.

I've had good results using 1/2"x1/8" magnets super-glued to the back of Aurora panels. I get them from Total Element (https://totalelement.com/collections/all-discs/products/totalelement-1-2-x-1-8-inch-neodymium-rare-earth-disc-magnets-n48-30-pack?variant=42424871877). The magnets are VERY strong, and hold firmly.

Here's a photo of them installed in a slot on the back that fits the magnet perfectly: https://www.anchoragemuseum.org/dev/terra/5–Attaching-Magnets.jpg

@ csuchland : The photo link does not work, how many magnets did you use for each panel en what glue did you use for the magnets

I want to mount the Aurora panels to a magnetic whiteboard on the wall

Nanoleaf should make adhesive magnets with a plastic coating.
The magnet could then be glued to the backside of the panels, and the plastic coating will there to protect scratching the surface where it is mounted on.

In this way you could use white and or coloured glassboards as a reuseable surface.
Because of the plastic coating you can shift (glide ) the panels over the whiteboard while making a new design, without removing them from the metal surface

Sorry about the bad link, the URL is being changed when I enter it here. Try https://www.anchoragemuseum.org/dev/terra/index.html and scroll down to the 5th photo which shows the magnets glued to the backs of the panels. I used LOCTITE Ultra Liquid Control Super Glue to attach them. If you look closely at the photo, you can see the one position in the pattern on the back of the Aurora panel that is just the right size for the magnets I used.

The magnets I used have nice smooth surfaces, and wouldn't scratch the surface they're attached to. They're also VERY strong, and one is more than enough. The only problem is that is you try to pull the panel straight off the metal surface (rather than sliding it to the side), the magnet can sometimes detach from the panel.

Well, this is off-topic related to magnetic mounting, but I'm very curious how you managed that all panels appear as one big screen, meaning how did you program all the scenes? Through the cloud API?

HOLLY MOTHER !!! a 1000 plates !!! animated bears !! This is out of mind blowing !

How can you afford so many plates geezee

Btw have you heard of the flickering issue.
what if nanoleafs desides to replace ur plates due to this flickering problem..you would need to start over again :D
