Levitating Top, Inside a Bubble All in The Name of Science

By  | 

Levitating Top

Meet Levitron, a top that floats due to magnetism and gyroscopic stability. The wooden base contains a large ring shaped magnet that repels the top which is a small ring shaped magnet. The spinning top creates a gyroscopic effect that prevents it from flipping over in the large magnet’s field. Created by Dustin Skye. The fog comes from an electronic cigarette (E-cig) that he modified to create fog with pure glycerin.
