What happens when copper interacts with magnets? Magic. Well, science that I don’t understand but would have made 10 year old me thrilled to experiment with. I’ll just have to settle for watching the video though.

@andrewford that's the coolest video I've seen in a while. I might have to buy some copper and magnets. Thanks.

@jwhevans I thought so too James. You should also check out this video of an engineer demonstrating linear motors from 1974, he uses copper electro-magnets. Science is awesome :)

@andrewford you were right. Each time he made the aluminum jump I whooped out loud. He is an excellent teacher.
