They`re not defying physics. The magnetic force acting on the balls is greater than the (relatively weak) force of gravity. Idfk why they had to use micro-chips, but I understand the copper-bound screws. Better conductivity. I still thought it was cool. I would like that as an installation piece.

microchips mean you can defy physics! everybody knows it!

It looks like one of those stupid Smirnoff TV ads ("I was there"). Like the one where they paint an old gas station purple and have a party.

Why circuits inside the balls? Why not just any metal thing? That would be enough.

What a great day. We drank our green tea, played with a magnet, smoked Natural American Spirit cigarettes and then Chase took us out for veggie-burgers. I`m glad I have friends like that. Oh, and wool knitted caps. DIE! F*CKING DIE!

BTW, why computer chips? What the hell is that supposed to do? That makes it retardedly fake.

So much fail from a scientific standpoint. That was hard to watch.

"As every hard drive in that room is rendered useless."
It is scary how true this is. Even small magnets (we`re talking as small as 4mm) will be plated in a strong metal because these things will fly with enough force to shatter them. Think about that when you stare at your kitchen cutlery or stove; "this thing would be in millions of pieces". If you used a magnet like that in a room with any metal near it, say goodbye.
Here`s a large magnet that can lift a f**king car if you have 2. Oh and by the way, this magnet is about 1/30th the size.

On top of all of that, just look at 1:02. Gigantic metal rack approximately equidistant with the floor.

TL;DR
Fake.

It`s fake. Animation/Design team out of Barcelona.

SS of the computer screen when he throws the balls on him show him working on the animation.

might not be fake, they could turn the electromagnet on/off repeatedly to overcome force of gravity

it`s fake because if anyone knows anything about magnetism they would know that if the magnet could lift the balls, the balls would be lifted all of the way, not be suspended in the air

FAKE. I design electromagnets, this stuff isn`t even close.

I like how it said "scrapyard yugioh" as a suggestion in the beginning.

A bunch of hipsters playing with plastics balls. I am unimpress.
