A wise man once asked, “magnets, how do they work?” Come to think of it, wise might not be the right word. Anyway, that’s irrelevant. Regardless of the science behind magnets, they’re still quite fascinating, depending on how they’re used. My favorite is to see something suspended in midair using them. If you find this to be equally interesting, then you might want to check out this DIY Magnetic Levitating Sculpture Kit.
The kit includes everything you need to suspend a small magnet in the air. Granted, there isn’t a lot of space between the magnet and the two cones it hovers between, but it’s still pretty cool. You should even be able to gently poke or spin the magnet, and watch it to continue to stay right where you put it. Science doesn’t come cheap though, as this kit will set you back $50.
