How to Make a tightrope walking magnet

In this how to video, you will learn how to make a tight rope walking magnet. You will need a power supply with currents between 15 to 25 amps. A thick wire from a half to one centimeter is also needed for the tight rope. A small neodymium magnet will also be required. String the wire from one end to another. Place the magnet at one end. Use a pair of pliers and a piece of metal as a switch to run the current through the wire. Once that is done, the magnet should go down the wire. A magnetic field is generated once the current goes through the wire, attracting the magnet to the wire. The shape of the magnet and gravity takes care of the rest.
