Electromagnet causes a cascade of colored balls

F5 2011 RE:PLAY Film Festival. Inductance from Physalia Studio on Vimeo.

(CBS) - Today in "Fun with electromagnets." The annual F5 Re:Play Fest is a celebration of art and media. The theme for this year's Fest was "Happy," and this video is one of the submissions. It definitely gets the "happy" right, and it's also pretty awesome to watch.

Who knew you could do that with plastic balls? This video was created by Gerardo del Hierro and the good folks at Physalia Studio. There is the (strong) possibility that this clip is a little on the fake side. But don't let that distract you from the awesome visual of colored balls cascading in air.
