How to Make a Homopolar Motor

I made a video on how to make a homopolar motor. Neodymium magnets are very strong. The magnet I was using can hold approximately 120 pounds, that's how strong it is! Please be very careful. 2 neodymium magnets can crush bones! Neodymium magnets can wipe credit cards, interfere with electronics, and even break electronics! Keep all electronic equipment and credit cards at least 3-5 feet away from the magnet! If you use a pacemaker, this project isn't for you.

The motor spins because of the Lorentz force. :) Physics is cool. :P

You can find the original video here. If you liked this video, you can see more videos I made here. I am "amazinggadgets". Make sure you subscribe!

Some of the materials you'll need to make one.
