This great project uses the a soleniod’s magnetic coil, a Hall sensor, and Arduino to perfectly levitate a magnet. The Hall sensor detects the field of the permanent magnet and uses that information to modulate the magnetic field of the electromagnet. If you’re unfamiliar with the Arduino, see our Arduino tutorial and top arduino projects.
