Electromegnetic Levatation Glove? Answered
I've seen some devices which use electromagnets controlled by microchips (like this https://www.instructables.com/id/Electromagnetic-Floater/) to levitate small objects. I'm wondering if that same technology could be put into a sort of glove, allowing the user to levitate small metallic or magnetic objects, and maybe even pull or shoot* them?
It would have a small electromagnet in each fingertip, as well as a larger one on the palm. All electromagnets could pull upwards on the object if the palm is facing down, and the object was below them. Only the fingertips would pull if it's facing up, and the object is above the palm, (but slightly below the level of the fingertips)
The problem would be sensing where the object is, and adjusting the power of each magnet based on that position, and the the position of the electromagnets.
*using actual magnetic repulsion would be tricky, but you could, say, have the object sit in the palm of the hand, with fingers outstretched, then have it attracted to the electromagnets in the fingers, which turn off just as it passes by them. It retains its momentum and shoots out.
So, if anyone want to confirm if this is feasible or not (or even want to make it), please post!
