Magnetic Levitation using the Arduino

Magnetic Levitation using the Arduino

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...
Magnetic Levitation Light Bulb uses Wireless Energy Transfer

Magnetic Levitation Light Bulb uses Wireless Energy Transfer

This movie demonstrates an implementation of wireless energy transfer, in combination with magnetic levitation. The result is a light bulb(20 Watt) floating in mid-air, while lit. Be sure to checkout the inspiration for this...
