The following presents several forms of levitation that can be experienced at home.

The first is based on gyroscopic suspension of opposing magnetic forces. The second is based on the diamagnetism between pyrolytic graphite and neodymium magnets. The third may be more magic than science, but is fairly intriguing nonetheless.

    how do you do that ?

    okaydo someone will type pls ?

    The first 2 were real, magnetism does have a levitating effect or we would have maglev trains… the last was not. You can clearly see it wiggling in a way the am loop would not have caused if it was real… then it drops for no reason?! It does, however, perform true to the ‘invisibly thin string’ idea.

    You seem pretty definate in that statment. Have you personally tried the last one, rather than merely observing a video?

    If tested three times and all fail, then its bogus. If even one succeeds, then it prompts further testing. Otherwise its merely personal observation, not terribly worthwhile alone.

    hey how do u do that wer do u think i can get that

    The third experiment is really magic )

    I think what everyone is thinking is where do I get those magnets. I did some looking around and they seem to be in automotive and computer stuff. Where? I don’t know. Though I read that you can rip them out of a old hardrive. Otherwise you can get them online at:


    I am going to get some and try this out.

    Hey Rob ever wonder how gravity works? Its a powerful thing. However, When magnetism is greater than and object’s mass that would be able to levitate an object. As for the fall unexpectedly, look closely at how far away the lemon was from the magnetic field before it drops. Interesting don’t you think? :)

    Sheesh, you’re like the Wizard of Oz in real life 0 0

    Can someone explain the process on how it does that I need it for science
