But the only purpose of this Cherry Wood Levitron is for you to have fun and be able to impress your friends, which is usually more than enough.
The classiest Levitron yet! High-tech design uses adjustable legs for easy leveling. Incorporates the most powerful rare earth magnets available! Unique base design amazes onlookers as the high-flying top levitates mysteriously above the opening in the center.
Here’s a video demonstration of this cool looking toy:

Levitron Omega now features a new powerful Neodymium magnet! Spin the top and watch it float—the LEVITRON spins and surfs on magnetic waves! Pass your hand above, underneath and around the top. It will continue to spin and float—only touching air! A challenge to master, a miracle to behold—the LEVITRON is an interactive puzzle which provides hours of entertainment. The more you practice, the longer you will be able to get the top to float.
The wooden Levitron is available at Science eStore ($40) and Amazon. (Update: Link removed, because the web pages no longer exist.)
