This desktop solar engine is a scientific and engineering marvel. It is also a work of art and contemporary design. It makes a beautiful desk toy and a conversation starter.

It will silently spin, powered by light when placed in bright ambient light (either sunshine or a strong incandescent lamp indoors).

It consists of three solar panels, each of which powers a copper-wire solenoid that produces a magnetic field that repels the permanent magnet affixed to the axis pole.
