Yeah. It's induced eddy currents in aluminum. The current is running thru the coiled copper pipes which are water cooled.

This is likely just due to eddy currents being induced by the magnetic field from the solenoid

It says clearly in the description that it is aluminum.

Scientific explanations aside, this is a pretty cool post. Just thot I'd say that.

That is aluminum. It is not magnetic in a static magnetic field, but it will levitate in a moving magnetic field. This will also induce heat and make the aluminum melt.

"It can't be lead. Lead is not magnetic"

Neither is aluminum or copper. It doesn't need to be ferrous to work...

I don't know what it is, but whether or not something is "magnetic" under normal circumstance, like iron, means very little. They've used high powered magnets to levitate just about any material imaginable. Most materials have magnetic properties, however most are too small to be observed under normal magnetic conditions.

"That's just lead. It heats up pretty easily."

Last I checked, lead wasnt magnetic...

Why isn't it aluminum like some of the other vids of this??
