Five years ago, a Hamdi Ucar showed Vortex a magnetic phenomenon he
stumbled across. It was something similar to Levitron except that it
involved the ability of a spinning magnetic to trap another magnetic
and suspend it in the spinning magnet's field regardless of the
polarity of the stationary magnetic. A search showed that no one
appears to have ever reported nor explained this phenomenon.

Since then, he has written a paper explaining the phenomenon and is
attempting to get it published. Here is a preprint of the paper
(caution: it is massive):

If the pictures are not enough to interest you, here are numerous
videos of his demonstration of the phenomenon:

If anyone does have any comments or questions, I will be happy to
forward them to Hamdi or put you in touch with him after I get his
