A series of experiments with magnets, aluminum cans and othere parts and pieces.
This experiments turn around the eddy currents. That currents are induced by a changing magnetic field near a metal electrical conductor. That currents generate a magnetic field opposed to the first one that brakes and drags the magnet-conductor system.

    Cool, experiments with Magnetic Induction! Works with glass as well, you have to get the glass VERY hot!! You can super heat glass with a Blowtorch, place it in a Microwave oven and melt it in the Microwave! But, be very careful, try it outside first! safer results!
