Floating cake using magnets - Page 2

post #16 of 22

if someone has the show on tape and takes a picture of the tv screen and can post it

 

i can't find it online

 

and for the record it's a one bite dessert that floats--one serving size

my cookies are prettier than your cookies because this is the second time i substituted my opalescent sanding sugar when i ran out of sugar to make the batch ha!

Maybe something like this?  I didn't see the cake so I don't know if something was above it?

yes! like that!!!

 

and the  'sushi' dessert roll was sitting on a round flat magnet the same size as the roll

 

and they had it spinning for a stunner effect

 

prolly just give it a twirl and it will stay spinning  for a few

 

that would be a great effect for a cake topper

 

then if you hit the instructables link i=on the link you found

 

they tell/show you how to make it

 

i think my brain is now detached and spinning above my head

 

my field is in sugar & butter--

 

electromagnetics are --hey my brother could make that thing!!!

Great thread! I've been lurking today (procastinating writing documentation) and this has me interested.

As a chemistry nerd I never took well to physics, but this might change my mind!

and hey--they are not outrageously ridiculously priced either

 

i mean forty fifty bucks is not chicken feed either but that's doable ish

This ingenious top spins in mid-air, levitated above a magnetic base, and can keep spinning for several minutes at a time. Seeming to defy gravity, it harnesses the repulsion of two permanent magnets, stabilized by gyroscopic forces.
