Levitating LED combines wireless power transfer + magnetic levitation

Chris Rieger is an Electrical Engineering student from the University of Queensland Australia, and has been experimenting with wireless power transfer and magnetic levitation. After studying the work of Jeff Lieberman, Eric Taylor, and others, Chris fine tuned his design to combine these two technologies to achieve the results depicted in this video.

Visit Chris Rieger’s website for project details and photos. Fascinating stuff!

    The wireless power transfer works better than I was expecting. The first thing that came into my mind when I read wireless power transfer was a small LED, not a power LED.
    That’s very cool !
