The goal for my experiment was to keep the parts in motion as long as possible.
This was accomplished by minimising the friction - the needles have a tiny contact surface.
This "breakdance needle" makes me happy as a child!
The big cube magnet (see below) is hanging from a metal lamp shade.
Other metal objects of a certain height will work just as fine.
and a K-08-C
is attached to the needle below.
Place this "spinning top" or "breakdancer" on a smooth surface underneath the metal object.
In my case it is a glass table top, but you can also use a flat plate.
The "spinning top" rotates really fast and almost frictionless on the smooth surface.
The sphere is at the very bottom.
