Here’s How To Make a Levitating Tesla Coil With Magnets

Tired of the regular thing? Make it levitate.

Are you one of those people who has always been enthralled by the concept of magnetism? That guess wouldn't be a stretch at all because, while the magnets' strength can be explained scientifically, their interaction with the world has an almost magical quality to it.

Tesla coils, which are electrical resonant transformer circuits, are one of the biggest examples of that. First developed by Nikola Tesla around 1891, Tesla coils are utilized to produce high-voltage, low-current, high-frequency alternating-current electricity. When the current hits them they make a pleasant little noise, which is how they can be used to play Africa's beloved banger, Toto

In this video by the YouTube channel Magnetic Games, which offers curious experiments and fun games to do with magnets, you can watch the Tesla coils in all their glory. The video is straight to the point without any fillers and shows how you can get Tesla coils levitating. If want to know more, make sure you watch the video embedded above, and as always, enjoy!
