In this amazing toy a pencil with a magnet stands on its tip and spins freely. The three surrounding magnets repel the pencil and keep it standing erect on one leg. This makes a low friction bearing. The fan attached to the pencil spins constantly when placed under a ceiling fan. http://www.arvindguptatoys.com/toys/v... This work was supported by IUCAA and Tata Trust.
