This incredible Magnetic Levitator science toy is a fascinating near-perpetual motion device that appears to defy gravity. 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. Float the levitator above its base for a fascinating show of magnetism. Strategically positioned magnets resist each other, causing the levitator to defy gravity. Spin it for a strobe effect!

Incredible Science Fun Learning Ideas:

Learn about perpetual motion theories and observe magnetic forces in action.
Notice the color change or the strobe effect (depending on the pattern of your device) of the spinning axle, or the bouncing and wobbling at different speeds due to the convergence of harmonic frequencies.
