I had the concept of scaling up Maxwells' demon experiment to a marco scale.

Replacing molecules of gas with light, rigid, balls. Perhaps coated in magnets with varying poles so they never touch (non-interacting). Would suspend them in a thin fluid with neutral buoyancy.

perhaps you could make a spherical magnet with all the poles passing through its centre.

Wouldn't work. You would not be able to keep the balls in motion.
