Hover Crafts Lighthouse with Magnetic Levitation

Hover Crafts Lighthouse with Magnetic LevitationOriginally designed and patented by a physicist, The Hover Crafts Lighthouse uses magnetic levitation to create an nifty kinetic model.

The horizontal shaft is held in mid-air by magnetic levitation. The lack of friction allows the propeller to rotate for a long time.

Each piece is carved from Mahogany wood and has been tuned.

Here is the Spinning Lighthouse at Edmund Scientifics.
