I found a couple of interesting magnetic levitation projects online when I was doing research for my Arduino magnet levitation project. I was also pointed out some really cool projects that I didn’t know about by visitors of my blog and of my Arduino forum thread. Here’s the list:
- http://de.sevenload.com/sendungen/Computerclub2/folgen/N7wXqna-Folge-20-Computer-club2 – video from a German podcast (in German), levitation starts at 16:25, they use ATmega8 and a Hall effect sensor in the base
- http://bea.st/sight/levitation/ – combined with a wireless energy transfer, uses ATtiny26, two Hall sensors on the coil, one on each side to compensate for the coil’s field. Also, check out his wirelessly powered levitating bulb.
- http://amasci.com/maglev/maglev.html – magnetic cradle, this is a levitation above electromagnets. Uses an array of coils with hall effect sensors to mimic a superconductor.
- http://sites.google.com/site/simerlab/ – professional magnetic levitation devices, above electromagnets.
