Do a simple experiment using copper wire and battery

In this video Mr.G puts a new spin on magnets and bare copper wire with just a simple battery. Motion via magic? Not quite, but pretty darn close! Join Mr. G, and build your own motor with its own unique new spin. This is a fun, easy, do it at home experiment.

This video is informal and accessible, but there needs to be a list of necessary items in the description. My son is all excited to do this, and I am too, but we have no idea what kind of magnets those are (he says it twice, fast, and I can't figure out what they are) or where to get them. This is something we could figure out (and proceed with!) if it was WRITTEN in the description. Bummer!
