I know that we have already talked about hoverboards already, this is different.
The Hendo hoverboard takes advantage of Lenz’s Law. This states that when a magnet interacts with an object with an electrical field, the magnets magnetic field and the materials electric field interact causing levitation.
Of cause, the “half pipe” was made of copper, a non-magnetic metal that emits an electric field. Yet your probably thinking, wow, copper isn’t magnetic, so how does this work? Usually on a flat surface or a convex surface it is not magnetic, but on a horizontally curved surface, the reaction is concentrated enough to achieve fly. It is also activated by a spinning electromagnet.
