Mysterious Spinning Top - A Kinetic Mystery
by Toysmith

A lesson in perpetual motion, it consists of a spinning top and a plastic base that houses an electromagnet. As the top spins past the center of the base, it changes the magnetic field and induces a current into the coil, momentarily opening up a switch to the 9V battery. This causes power to be sent to the electromagnet, turning it on and delivering enough of a charge to the spinning top to speed it up and send it away from the center of the base.

The base measures 3.5 inches in diameter, and is 1.2 inches thick. The top is 19mm (0.7") in diameter and 22mm (0.9") tall. A single 9V battery (not included) is required to power the electromagnet.
