ZeroN: Interactive Magnetic Levitation

Now matter how much advanced technology we're surrounded by these days, there are still areas that still seem like "magic". At least, that's how I feel when we start digging into the magnetism area, and find things like quantic super levitation.

This ZeroN might now go as far as those superconductive magnets, but being able to levitate (and record and replicate movement in mid air) a small metallic sphere, still falls under the same "mesmerizing" category.

Thr "trick" is achieved with an advanced magnetic control system that continuously adjusts its parameters in order to make the object float and move around in a 3D space. Add some cameras and projectors, and the recipe is ready for the amazing results you can see in the following video.
