Has anyone ever tried to build a machine where Magnetism would lift something up and Gravity would pull it down.  Thanks.  Joe L. Ogan

They have. The maglev train is one example.

You can buy toys that levitate objects with permanent magnets too.
There ain'ta no sanity clause, and there ain'ta no centrifugal force Šther.

You have to admire how they hook up the wires. Genius!

I was a little disapointed that he didn't incorporate duct tape into the design.  I'm also thinking I should make a similar video, but with a contraption you put under your furniture...you know, to make it easy to move.  I wonder how much money I could make before I got caught ripping people off?
