As a Macintosh repair technician, I am always looking for cool and unusual "Tech Toys" - it's a side effect of the "Tech Gene".
As far as "Tech Toys" go, the Levitron is by far the COOLEST tech toy I have yet seen. The fact that the top is only supported by magnetic repulsion and stabilized by spinning is such a simple concept, but to see it in action is a sight to behold, truly amazing!
I took my Levitron Platinum edition to work (Computer Town in Salem NH) and showed the other techs, suffice it to say, jaws hit the floor when they saw it in action, the words "that is the coolest thing I have ever seen" were repeated numerous times by whomever saw it, whether sales staff or techs, very impressive. >
I am beginning to realize that consistent spins are more of an art form than a science, I am beginning to recognize the factors of a successful spin and I can almost predict the duration of the levitation based on the initial spin-up
A truly amazing Tech Toy, thanks for producing this miracle of modern science.
Great work, Fascinations!
