    just so you know, this doesnt defy the laws of gravity, it would be cool if it did lol. its not "anti gravity" its only a realy powerful electromagnet and another magnet on the spinning top as you said :p still its very cool, they sell these in the gadget shop.

    Oh doh, one day Ill do something right and the whole Hive Workshop will cheer. Atleast it can stay in the air for a min or so, unlike us. How they used the magnetic force is clever in my eyes.

    the physics behind the superconductors are quite impressive too. i dont have a detailed knowledge, but basically when the temperature of certain metal (and ceramic compounds) reaches very very very low temperature, almost absolute zero, they repel all electromagnetic forces which makes them repel other magnets. a recent invention was the high temperature ceramic super conductor which would work at -68 degrees celcius or soemthing, but thats still very cold!

    er..not that special, its just the - + of a magnet and weights etc, nothing too special but was amazing when i was a little tucker of a chewy girl.

    That's quite ignorant of the very complicated mathamatics behind this. If you merely put a magnet under a reppeling force it will go upwards and merely fly off. There's a tiny computer controlling the rotation of the bottom magnet which keeps the spinning magnet balanced. You'd be suprised just how hard it is to keep a flying magnet still.

    Anti-Gravity toy? nono thats a gadget that uses magnetic force, obviously some youtube people got the wrong idea xD. Still amazing how the magnetic force keeps it in the air in my opinion anyways.

    That was pretty neat, although I wouldnt spend money on it.
