Main Question or Discussion Point

i am a high school student and have designed a magnetic levitation system for my school science fair.
The circuit used is: http://uzzors2k.4hv.org/projectfiles...%20circuit.GIF [Broken]
However, i would like to scale up the project and find some REAL WORLD applications for the system. I have been thinking about this for two days now but haven't come up with anything yet.
One idea would be an earthquake detector (need to think about that)
Has anyone got anything else in mind?
(P.S.: As soon as possible)

Your link doesn't work.

How about low friction bearings.
Did you want something that hasn't been done already? I assume you know about the trains

Could you please elaborate it

Hi There, the link is now working and I see that you are talking of suspending objects rather than the traditional maglev method like with the existing applications (trains, bearings)

So did you design the circuit? In which case is that your site with all the designs on it? it's quite impressive for a high school student.

I honestly can't think of much you could do with this concept off the top of my head, that can't be done with normal maglev technique.

haha, that is not my own site, am just using for designing a science fair experiment. That is the reason why I want some idea to modify the experiment by looking for some real world application!
