Levitation through magnetism

You don’t need magic to obtain levitation. Get two magnets, one with a plain shape ie cube and another one in the shape of a spinner. Simply make sure the spinner rotates and stays vertically and you’ll be amazed by the performance.

In the video above they need to try this at least a dozen times to make it rotate and levitate for about two minutes. Do you know why it stops eventually and falls to the grouond? The spinners slows down due to the friction with air and then, when it cannot hold its upright stance, it turns around and falls.
