Introduction: Hovering Magnets

About: I am the type of person that tries to make the most out of life. I take what opportunites I can and make the most of them. I am a DIY type of person that likes to build stuff: obvious since I am here on this...
Materials: magnets, balls, tape, thread

Procedure:

1. Form a structure of a pyramid with some rods extending into each other and balls to act as the joints.

2. Form a rod structure and hang it over the pyramid, taping the thread down on the surface.

3. You'll have to fiddle around with it a lot, but you will have a rod hovering over the pyramid.

    You do need spherical ball magnets, but they don't have to be neodymium. I would link the set that I used, but I can't find it.

    Do you need neodymium magnet balls for this?
