Super-strong neodymium magnets crushing a man's hand
Find out more about super-strong magnets at - This video graphically demonstrates what happens when two super-strength 72mm diameter neodymium magnets weighing 1.8kg slam together with a man's hand in between. This video is intended to demonstrate the incredible power of neodymium magnets and what can happen if they are mishandled. The results are graphic and are only recommended for viewers over 18 years old. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

5 Amazing Tricks With Magnets
5 Amazing Tricks With Magnets 5 Awesome Tricks With Magnets Tricks from this video: 1. Homemade compass. For this trick you need needle, piece of cork, magnet, plate and some water. You need to magnetize a needle and put it on the cork which floating in the plate with water. The needle show you South and North. 2. Simple speaker. For this trick you need copper wire d 0.2-0.3 mm, magnet and tape. Follow the instruction and coonect the ends of the wire to your mobile phone or mp3 player. 3. Electric magnet. For this trick you need battery, copper wire and nail. Instruction is quite simple: wrap the nail with the wire and connect the ends of the wire to the battery. That's all :) 4. Simplest homopolar motor. You need battery, aluminium foil and 2 neodium magnets. Connetc opposite poles magnets to the battery and put it on the foil. Your motor starts rotate. 5. Perfect geometry. You need 7 same magnets, 7 coca cola caps, plate and water. Stick magnets to the caps. Fill the plate with water and put caps very carefully one by one. You will see the perfect geometry!

Magnet Gun -magnetic launcher neodymium magnet sphere and magnet cubes 5*5 mm ramp magnetic launcher Magnetic Launcher The device is made of a rail fitted with magnets. The rail could be in aluminium and the magnets are fixed below. The most important point is the positioning of the magnets. They must present the same magnetic pole on one side, for the entire row. For example, all magnets on the left side must present the south pole and all magnets on the right side the north pole. In the experiment shown in the video, small cubic magnets have been used but it is also possible with cylindrical magnets. If the two poles are on each face, the magnets have to be placed vertically, as if they were wheels. The space between the magnets is not so critical, but in order to get a good acceleration they must be close enough of each other. It depends of the strength of the magnets, for our experiment they were placed approximately each 5 mm (1/5”). Then at the end of the rail, two magnets are used instead of one. This is to stop the sphere magnet motion with a stronger magnetic field. The magnetic sphere is placed approximately 2 cm (1”) from the beginning of the ramp (the opposite side of the two magnets). There is no need to set the sphere in rotation, the magnetic field of the ramp's magnets will attract it towards the end of the ramp. Then the two magnet's stronger field will stop the motion. Each magnets set gives the same speed increase, the speed increase comes from the addition of this speed to the remaining speed from the previous magnets set, thanks to inertia. The glass sphere (marble) is placed just before the ending magnets of the rail, so that the magnet sphere hits it with its maximum speed. While the magnet sphere is stopped by the magnetic trap, the marble is ejected from the launcher.
