This Magnetic Levitator is a fascinating near-perpetual motion device that levitates by a magnetic field. Its axle floats by repelling magnets and there is only one small friction point where the metal tip touches the glass. Because of the small friction, the levitator can rotate for a surprising amount of time. Principles of physics can be demonstrated in any science classroom through this great levitator!

Learning and fun!

I bought this for my two, 7 year old grandsons to help them learn about magnets and they have more fun trying to get it to spin. In fact the adults have just as much fun playing with the Levitator.

Does what I got it (to give as a present) for: to illustrate the action-at-a-distance phenomenon.

Excellent item that suports lessons in the classroom. It is difficult to spin it smoothly so it will go on longer, but the operation is simple and fun.
