Levitating LEGO Lamp
The majority of this project is an electromagnetic levitation desk-toy that used to suspend a globe. The Earth got boring, so I took the magnet out of it and used it to levitate other things.
For this one, I took the pod portion of a LEGO "X-Pods" set and put the magnet on the "ceiling" of it. It floats quite stably, and the UV portion of the blue LEDs causes it to fluoresce eerily.
